As mentioned earlier, a Passive House is not a compulsory standard. However, there are several advantages to building a Passive House than just energy efficiency. In case you’re wondering, here are the benefits you can get from our Passive House certified design:
Constructing a passive house entails a lot of work, and since such process incurs a lot of costs, you have to make sure that everything is done carefully right from the planning and designing process down to construction.
Step 1: Contact us and provide us with your design brief
Before we start with the designing process, we should first obtain your design brief, so we can know everything there is to know about your project. In this phase, we will talk about the scope of your project, the materials you want, how you want it designed, your current budget, and several other details. If possible, we would like to talk with you personally, so we can have a more accurate view of your project.
Step 2: We’ll conduct a site inspection
To make sure we can get accurate measurements of your proposed passive house, we will send a team to perform a site inspection. They will also inquire about the measurement of your building, the exact dimensions of your lot, and more. During this stage, we would like to request that you provide details as accurately as possible.
Step 3: The design phase commences
After we have gathered all the information we need including the design brief and building specifics, we then proceed to the designing phase. Our designing team is made up of expert designers who are well-versed in using various tools for MEP and BIM (building information modeling) such as AutoCAD, Revit, and more.
Step 4: We’ll ask for initial feedback and make appropriate revisions or add updates
Once we have come up with an initial output, we will first ask for your initial feedback. We won’t call the design final yet, as there are still various aspects that need revisions and/or improvements. During this stage, your feedback will prove to be crucial. After you have provided us with your feedback, we will then make sure to apply the details you specified.
Step 5: Finalize the design
After we have made the appropriate revisions and improvements on the design, we will then send you the final design. Additionally, we can also create a 3D visualization, so you can have a preview of how your passive house design will look like once the construction is finished.
