Could Your Building Pass This Passive House Exam?

The Montgomery Primary School in Exeter is the first passive house building built in the UK by a big contractor.

If this school were sitting a zero-carbon design exam it would get a very good mark. Take a look at its answer paper. Use of proven low energy design methodologies: tick. Use of robust construction techniques: tick. Use of renewable technologies with very generous government grants: tick. Potential to form a standardised design for use in other schools: tick. Future-proofed against climate change: tick.
