New Year Debate: Are Passivhaus Buildings Healthy?

Date:    Time: 17:30-20:30   Location:

Join the Passivhaus Trust for their annual New Year Debate & Celebration. The subject of this year’s debate will be one of the ASBP’s key themes – health and well-being.

The questions that will be asked are…

“Are the Passivhaus performance criteria the key components of a healthy building?”

“Are they enough on their own or do more factors need to be addressed such as material toxicity, daylighting and access to greenery?”

Come along, join the debate and share your views!
