Contour Housing are going to be building some passivhaus houses in Oldham – Contour Homes is developing 93 new homes on the 2.2 hectare flagship site and four homes will be built to the ‘Code for Sustainable Homes Level 6’, the highest level of sustainable construction which offers many benefits to residents and the environment.
The two Passivhauses are being built alongside four Code 6 carbon-free homes, all set to be complete by the end of 2012.
It says just FOUR homes will be built to the level 6 standard and just 2 passivhaus.
It is good that they are building some to this standard though and maybe in future developments they will all meet these higher standards.
It’ll be interesting to see what people think about living in them!
