DO`S for a passive house building structure!

When building a passive house, the building structure is one of the key elements. One should:

  • minimise complexity – this reduce the chance of error and can assist buildability
  • junctions between elements, insulating layers should meet without any gaps
  • insulating layers should join without interruption or misalignment
  • design edges and corners to have as obtuse angles as possible
  • during the design process ensure that simple robust details are developed with adequate construction tolerance
