Architects - Why your first question should be 'Would you like to be Passivhaus Certified?'

When setting out on a project it is a good idea for architects to ask clients if Passivhaus certification is something they would like to consider for their project. At Greenbox we are happy to run through the benefits to your clients with you or with them directly to see if they would like to consider it.

By offering Passivhaus certification from the outset it prevents situations arising where the plans have been drawn, the design agreed on and then the client starts asking about Passivhaus certification. If Passivhaus is considered form the outset then a project can be designed around core Passivhaus requirements - saving everyone, time, money and headaches.

It is far more cost effective to define this requirement before plans are drawn up and leads to a smoother process for all involved. With Passivhaus becoming increasingly popular and widely talked about it really should be the first question we all ask new clients. If you'd like more information about Passivhaus certification please don't hesitate to get in touch.
