During the last 12 months, a long list of little details have been completed including the exterior railings, landscaping and the mechanical system commissioning. Last one probably the most important for this project as the ventilation system did not perform to the full satisfaction of our clients.

During the system testing for winter mode, it was discovered that the pre and post heaters were not working properly and had to be replaced, which resolved the problems.

With all systems fully balanced and working 100%, the homeowners are enjoying all benefits a house designed and constructed to Passive House Standard has to offer.

The homeowners also decided to submit their home to Surrey’s NewCity Awards – fingers crossed.

Here are a few more images from our recent photoshoot by photographer Shamit Sthankiya– enjoy!
