2024 Webinar Series #4 – Scottish Passivhaus Equivalent (Part 3) – Compliance – How do we meet the standard?

The final instalment in our webinar series will be held at 12pm on Tuesday 27th February.

In this session Michael Jarvis and Morgan Stephen Milne will look to bring together the key points of the series and offer their thoughts on what a Scottish Passivhaus Equivalent might actually look like, as well as the potential implications for compliance and assessment.



Whilst the exact nature of the Scottish Passivhaus Equivalent is yet to be determined, it is clear that there are a number of factors which will need to be considered prior to its implementation.  As we have touched on during our webinars, it is likely that this will require rethinking of various design and specification elements, as well as detailed consideration of user benefits, ease of use, maintenance, and capital cost.

Alongside this there will also be a need to look at how any new standard will be assessed.  At present, achieving Passivhaus certification requires a rigorous quality assurance process to be adopted throughout the design, construction and commissioning phases of the project.  Adherence to this ensures that buildings are constructed as they are designed, in turn achieving the desired level of energy performance.

Key to the success of any new standard will be the way that this stringent approach is applied within the Technical Handbooks and current Building Control system across Scotland.
