Linear Control Systems Ltd took on the installation and management of the Passivhaus project for Swillington Primary School.
The installation entailed a mechanical ventilation system with highly efficient heat recovery, helping the school heat and ventilate at little cost.
A Passivhaus building provides a high level of occupant comfort while using very little energy for heating and cooling. They are built with meticulous attention to detail and rigorous design and construction practices; according to principles developed by the Passivhaus Institute in Germany. These factors can be certified through an exacting quality assurance process.
Completed by Interserve working in partnership with Leeds City Council and supported by Linear Controls, Swillington Primary School in Leeds is one of only a few non-domestic Passivhaus-certified buildings in the UK.
