Advantages of whole-building systems for passive house! Prefabricated components, construction time and quality!

  • A whole-building system can remove some of the complexities of ensuring that different materials and components can be combined to achieve Passivhaus requirements.
  • Prefabricated components can speed up construction time, resulting in lower labour costs.
  • Construction programme is less affected by bad weather.
  • The mechanisation used in construction increases conformity to the Passivhaus standard.
  • Materials are protected from exposure to the elements during construction.
  • Quality control and factory airtight sealing ensures better quality control.
