The construction firm has completed the main works to the Welshpool Church in Wales Primary School that meets the rigorous energy efficiency standards required for Passivhaus certification.   Constructed around a timber frame that was sustainably sourced in Wales, the school has a superior level of insulation and was built to be airtight. It also has a heat recovery and ventilation system and solar panels on the roof to minimise running costs.

The scope of the project is to promote, though architecture, the set-up of a collaborative community living in passive houses. In fact, the building has shared facilities, encouraging social contacts and individual space in a community managed the residents.   Each household is independent, but there is a common space for activities, such as crafts, guest rooms, and the provision by the community of three meals per week. As far as possible the scheme uses natural building materials.
