Oakmeadow and Bushbury Hill primary schools are the first PassivHaus schools in the UK.

We were delighted to be involved in these groundbreaking projects. We arranged for expert training on site for the construction team to show them the range of airtightness products and how they would make it easier to achieve the stringent standards of Passivhaus.

We worked with the subcontractors on each site as well, supporting them with training and products. The result was exceptional with each school saving the equivalent of a teachers' wage a year on space heating, and the project was delivered for the same budget as a normal school build!
