The UK's first certified passivhaus plus multi-residential building utilises Wienerberger's high-performing Porotherm solution.
Seaton Beach, Devon is the UK’s first certified Passivhaus Plus multi-residential building, comprising seven two-bedroom apartments and a three-bedroom penthouse. The carefully designed development prioritised innovation, health and wellbeing throughout its construction and was therefore able to go above and beyond the stringent requirements of the Passivhaus Standard.
As such, the project has been certified as a Passivhaus Plus home. The leading certification combines the minimal energy requirements of the Passivhaus standard with further on-site renewable energy generation methods. Now completed, the groundbreaking project is helping to reduce energy bills for its residents.
