Amberley - Passivhaus Post Occupancy Evaluation

A major RSL
PRP Studio

PRP is working with a major RSL on a longitudinal study to establish the efficiency of its new PassivHaus development. The study combines monitoring temperature, humidity and CO2 in the key rooms of a sample of houses overlaid with in-depth qualitative interviews with residents.

Early findings suggest that the MVHR systems are a critical factor, both in the commissioning and maintenance, and also in residents’ confidence in engaging with the controls.
