This FAQs document draws on industry and governmental research and feedback from the construction market.

This includes answers to questions such as:

  • Why do we need a low energy design strategy?
  • What is the Passivhaus standard?
  • What are the key benefits of a Passivhaus approach?
  • How can we minimise the cost of Passivhouse?

The document is intended to be read as a supporting appendix to the Low Energy Design Strategy Proposal Template, to assist with internal consultation for teams seeking approval to target the Passivhaus standard.
