BPI Series | Episode 6 – Achieving Thermal Performance in Modular CLT Developments

The sixth episode of the Building Performance Interactive series hosted by Passive House Accelerator focuses on the sustainable design and construction of wood modular co-housing developments. The adoption of high-performance techniques and materials into the building envelope facilitates the delivery of thermal efficiency. We visit the Agorahaverne – Ibihaven project in Denmark built to play its part in the circular economy, resulting in a housing concept with the smallest possible CO2 footprint and the largest possible reusability. Brian Søndergaard Hansen, Technical Director of FlexModul, and Morten Kudahl, Product Manager of Kliima, provide a video tour of the project and the FlexModul factory, sharing the local building regulations, high-qaulity manufacturing process, and best practices incorporated. The building’s structure made from prefabricated CLT modules is characterized by eco-friendly, high-quality solutions. This project demonstrates how energy-efficient components can improve buildings’ energy performance.

The Building Performance Interactive (BPI) – Design it. Shape it. Build it. developed by Passive House Accelerator in collaboration with Partel, provides a series of interactive seminars, focused on the elevation of high-performance building as its guiding principles. The case studies will draw from projects in the UK, Ireland, and Europe, and discusses building performance, design solutions, sustainable building materials, and experiences relevant for being implemented on a global scale.
