Certified Passivhaus Designer

Certified Passivhaus Designer

September 8, 2022

It’s a fantastic start to the month with architect Steve Fitzwilliam becoming a certified Passivhaus designer – one of only 572 Passivhaus consultants qualified in the UK.

The Passivhaus ‘whole building approach’ is an international design standard for ultra-low energy use in buildings and targets very high standards of internal comfort and wellbeing – now more important than ever in the current energy bills crisis.

Steve’s new qualification illustrates Rivington Street Studio’s commitment to deliver sustainable new-build and retrofit projects with a focus on energy reduction on one hand and carbon reduction on the other.

The practice will continue to build its portfolio of projects designed to the principles of this rigorous standard, including Stebon Primary School (the first school in London to be built to Passivhaus standards) and the New City Road residential project in Newham (currently on site).
