The Passivhaus standard is "a watershed moment in our relationship with the built environment [and I] would like to see every new home in the UK reach the standard" Chris Huhne, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate, October 2010.

Do you want to build comfortable, energy efficient and low carbon homes? Do you want a highly marketable brand? Passivhaus standards may help.

Passivhaus (Passive House) principles are a key methodology for building low carbon homes, resulting in minimal heating demand. The Passivhaus standard can help you achieve high levels of the Code for Baker Homes and significantly reduce heating bills.

This introductory Passivhaus course is developed and delivered by Baker Homes alongside Certified Passivhaus Designers, Parsons & Whittley Architects. It will give you a clear understanding of the design priniciples, drivers and outcomes and will help you to incorporate Passivhaus in your developments.

Passivhaus standards are ever more relevant with tightening building standards, demanding carbon targets and rising energy bills. In 2011, Code for Baker Homes level 4 is expected to become a requirement for planning permissions in many areas, starting with Greater London.
