We work with individual home owners to find design solutions that create energy efficient, comfortable, healthy, sustainable homes.
We use our 20+ years of design experience and knowledge of the Canberra climate, we combine that with the use of the latest Thermal performance Modelling software and building science to ensure your home operates the way it is intended.
We utilise a program called FirstRate5.
The software enables us to model a house to precise detail and calculate the heating and cooling energy required to maintain comfortable temperatures all year round.
The software tool generates ratings based on the NatHERS 0-10 star scale for homes.
Under current regulatory requirements, homes are required to have a minimum of 6 out of 10 stars.
If you are interested in achieving the Passive House standard we utilise the Passive House Planning Package (PHPP). This is the building energy modelling software used to design a Certified Passive House building.
For a more detailed explanation see the Passive House section of the Your Home Manual.
