Collaboration with bere:architects wins Passivhaus Competition

We are delighted to announce that our collaborative project with bere:architects in Watford has won this year's BRE-Watford Passivhaus Design Competition. 

The yearly competition awards designers who combine comfortability with sustainability, through designs that prove low-energy houses can both lower your heating and cooling bills, and provide you with a homely space. 

This year's winning entry was a house incorporating traditional design whilst highlighting that sustainable social housing can be cost-effective.  

Robert McLeod, from Regeneration Partnership Ltd and a member of the judging panel, said: "Choosing a winner for the Watford site was not an easy task… bere:architects in partnership with the Prince's Foundation for Building Community stood out overall as presenting the most comprehensively thought out proposal. The strength of their submission centred on a simple but well articulated design that involved extensive engagement with local supply chains and collaborative partnering." 

The design submitted through our collaboration with bere:architects for the Innovation Park in Ravenscraig was also announced as a runner-up, with the winning design having been submitted by Passiv Collective.
