Panelised Passive House – looked great

IMG_2033For our last networking meeting of the year Viva visited the  Panalised Passive House presently under construction in Parklands.

A collaboration between ProjeX4 and Vicus Design Group, the house is constructed of panels from LVL, the panels are fully insulated and lined with both an air tight membrane and water tight membrane as well as ply bracing.

A dozen of us gathered under stormy clouds, and really enjoyed looking at this house and hearing its story.  I found the passive house system they are using fascinating, and it was great to see how they are using the LVL.  

We had to gather under what shelter we could as the rain started, but it was an inspirational way to end the VIVA! year!
