The TCosy™ solution is flexible, versatile and accommodates any size or shape, allowing complete freedom with regards to choice of vernacular and style.
TCosy™ not only transforms the exterior of a house, but also provides you with all the long terms environmental and health benefits of Passivhaus living.
Brief: To extend and retrofit a 1970s three-bedroomed house to Passivhaus standard while aesthetically updating it to create a light, modern and energy-efficient family home.
Project scope: Design and build of a two-storey extension to the west side of the house and a first floor extension above the garage to the east.
The extensions were built to Passivhaus standard, and the existing building retrofitted with the Beattie Passive TCosy™ system, including the loft space and underneath the house to form a highly insulated airtight 'box'.
High performance windows were fitted throughout and a mechanical ventilation heat recovery system installed to maximise energy efficiency, ensuring no additional heating system was required.
