Passivhaus Student Competition sponsored by lafarge Tarmac赢家


Participating Universities


信任launcheda nationwide pilot Passivhaus student competition, kindly sponsored byTarmac,2014年10月在英国公民会议上。



The competition formed part of the students’ ongoing course work; they developed a masterplan to improve an existing town centre. Within this masterplan the competitors were asked to identify one retrofit or new build project and provide detailed design to turn this into a certifiable Passivhaus building.

Each university has identified a live regeneration scheme with support from the associated council; student projects have the chance to potentially inform & influence the local redevelopments.The locations have similar post-war, concrete urban centre characteristics.

After working on group masterplans, students developed their own designs for either a new build or retrofit mixed use development designed to Passivhaus Standard. The brief includedan iconic destination building that链接与重要地标,并有一个PPR施力与新电车的存在。

Students were encouraged to produce ‘civic’ minded projects focusing on the repair of city fabric by the insertion of an appropriate master plan, a multi-occupant Performance in Education complex and well considered public space, as well as the retrofitting of a 1960's office block to Passivhaus standards.

项目must aim to achieve sustainable development, both in terms of creating energy efficient buildings and in terms of nurturing a community that is commercially viable and resilient.

The Passivhaus standard has been identified as the ideal vehicle to explore these challenges because of the simplicity of its approach and clearer relationship with design decisions. The standard is flexible allowing the students to explore throughout the project the relationship between design and performance in terms of comfort and energy efficiency.

It has been interesting to see the variety of entries from the students, as they represent the different skills that are needed to deliver a successful Passivhaus, from concept design through detailed design and PHPP calculations and down to the individual choices of materials and energy efficiency measures to be implemented. It’s great to see such an enthusiastic response to Passivhaus from the next generation of designers and consultants!

“We’ve been delighted to work with Lafarge Tarmac on this inaugural student competition, particularly because the choice of materials has such an impact on the thermal performance of a building in terms of managing both heat losses and thermal gains. The students’ feedback was excellent about the resources we were able to provide due to Lafarge Tarmac’s support.
