We expertly apply the most technically demanding energy standards in the world.

HR Plastering has a long standing engagement with environmental processes, materials and technologies to achieve sustainable outcomes for all our projects. We are strong advocates of the Passivhaus standard and have been involved in this specialist area for a number of years. Passivhaus or 'Passive House' is the fastest growing energy performance standard in the world according to Bre, an internationally recognised research-based consultancy. It is considered one of the simplest construction approaches to achieving a robust highly effective energy efficient building.

"Passivhaus is the fastest growing energy performance standard in the world"

Passivhaus can be applied to residential, commercial, industrial and public buildings. The standard is intended primarily for new buildings but can equally be achieved through refurbishment. With excellent thermal performance and exceptional airtightness regulated through a mechanical ventilation system PassivHaus not only provides significant economic benefits but also offers considerably improved health and wellbeing to its occupants than a conventional building.

HR Plastering can apply years of experience, knowledge and skills to this highly exacting field to ensure your project reaches the quality assurance to verify achievement of the specific energy values. A robust thermal modelling process provides a critical factor in the success of the building, in particular, minimising heat loss through the careful control of thermal bridges. Our experience and knowledge of this area will offer the reassurances you require to ensure a highly successful project build.
