Passive Homes are designed with exceptional skill and attention to meet the highest standards of performance, comfort and efficiency.

Design, materials and architecture collide to create a home environment that regulates temperature, moisture, air-quality, humidity and energy efficiency. Passive Homes are the defining standard in modern construction, bringing the latest developments to the walls of your home. The result is a home that exceeds standards, reduces maintenance & utility costs, and manages the ecological impact of the home.

Temperature Regulation

Warming and cooling a home is a major source of energy consumption. Maintaining a comfortable temperature range cuts down on mould, condensation and heat loss/gain. This makes the home a significant factor in ongoing utility cost.

The air-tightness of a home is related to the quality of the air within and the amount of moisture passing into the home. A Passive Home will prevent leakage of pollutants from outside and maintain its temperature, thus raising efficiency.

Quality Windows & Doors

Doors and windows must be thoughtfully crafted and placed to ensure they are not weakening the seal of the home. Glazed windows and quality doors eliminate condensation while maintaining the ability to open them.

Ventilation systems make it possible for the home to regulate its own temperature, adjust for humidity and increase the comfort of the occupants. Mechanical ventilation over natural is an all-season solution to the Australian climate.
