The seventh episode of the Building Performance Interactive series hosted by Passive House Accelerator focuses on the sustainability benefits of light gauge framing and precision of the offsite manufacturing process, in designing and building high-performance. We explore the life cycle of a unique multi-unit regenerative project in Ireland – Drumhierny Woodland Hideaway, where the focal point is protecting the natural woodlands through carbon-neutral construction. The co-hosts along with Accelerator will visit the Framespace factory and site. Paddy Mahon, Head of Design and Engineering and the team will talk about the innovative solutions and techniques used in the production of the 16 units, based on light gauge steel assemblies, covering the factors that contribute to the delivery of fabric energy performance, thermal efficiency, and reduced carbon footprint. A real perspective on the process from start to finish – in-house design, completely off-site manufactured weathertight panels, installation, assembly, and project scalability.
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.
