Camden Passivhaus - London's First Certified Passivhaus

Cam 01

Integrity Buildings were Main Contractor on London’s first certified Passivhaus and jointly
England’s first.

This two bedroom home in Camden was constructed for our Client on a very tight site.

The 120m2 home was constructed with a heavily insulated prefabricated timber frame set
inside a 3m reinforced concrete retaining wall

As a ‘new’ working methodology was required Integrity had a significant input, not only in
the practical organisation of the relevant processes on site, but also in terms of technical
specification of the various components, timber frame, doors, windows, mechanical and
electrical components, etc.

The home has proved very economical to run and is achieving a saving on heating costs of
about 90% compared to traditional.

Bere Architects design of the house provides bright and airy rooms, with large triple glazed
windows to the South. The home also incorporates two wild flower green roofs.
