Passivhaus builds are generally more expensive to build due to the complexity of the construction detailing and the rigorous air tightness requirements. As the only UK Company to be a Passivhaus certified complete build system, Beattie Passive dramatically reduces the build cost due to the simple structural detailing for walls, floor, ceilings and roofs.
Our design team will incorporate any design, shape or style of architectural drawings into our 3D modelling system and deliver a custom made package incorporating all the key Passivhaus values of our build system to you.
Add MVHR and quality windows to a Beattie Passive structure and you will reduce your heating requirements by up to 90%.
By using the Beattie Passive structure, MVHR and photovoltaic cells together you can achieve 100% reduction in CO2 emissions.
Existing Building Regulations | Beattie Passive
Fire Safety: 1 hour | 2 hour fire protection between dwellings
Sound- proofing: 52 db | 67 db sound between dwellings
Thermal Efficiency/U-values: 0.28 | 0.11
Air tightness: 0.10 | 0.09 and below
The simplicity of the system allows for fast on-site erection. Beattie Passive is designed to be locally manufactured at any location using readily available materials and therefore does not have an extended lead-in time for procurement as a factory manufactured system.
The use of our bespoke 3D modelling design allows all materials to be measured to within a 1mm which greatly reduces on-site waste as well as over-ordering of materials.
Our method of construction offers an easy to assemble frame-link build system. Working from assembly drawings, each member is coded to its attachment member allowing just semi-skilled labour to be employed. Beattie Passive's unique spacing template eradicates all on-site measurement errors.
All materials used are from a fully certified supply chain.
• All structural joints open to inspection
• Only one inspection to see all structural joints and fixing on completion of structural build
• Will not pass independent thermal, air tightness and sound tests unless properly constructed and insulated
• Building control officers can study 3D drawings before arrival on site, thus speeding up the time and frequency of visits
We inspect and independently performance test every Beattie Passive house to ensure the highest standards of construction are maintained. We carry out stringent air tightness, thermal imaging and sound migration tests following structural completion and only upon reaching the design standard, will we issue a quality assurance certificate. We test at the right time, every time.
