Dr. Henrik Schoenefeldt is the Principle Investigator of a new research project entitled ‘Interrogating the technical, economic and cultural challenges of delivering the passivhaus standard in the UK’.
The primary aim of the project, which is based on 13 detailed case studies, is to gain an in-depth and critical understanding of the experiences of architects, contractors, manufacturers and engineers with the adoption of the Passivhaus standard in the UK.
The project, which is co-ordinated by Dr. Henrik Schoenefeldt from the Centre for Architecture and Sustainable Environment, involves a collaboration between industry, university-based researchers and post-graduate students. The Passivhaus Trust joined the project as a collaborator and the project has received direct financial support and/or in-kind support from James Anwyl (Eurobuilt), Richard Hawkes (Hawkes Architecture) and Doug Smith (tp Bennett).
The project is now looking for additional industry partners to provide further financial as well as in-kind support. The sponsorship can be for the whole project or for specific events between £500 and £1000 per sponsor. If your company is interested in supporting the project, please contact Dr. Henrik Schoenefeldt: firstname.lastname@example.org.
