NIHE appointed CFM as the main contractor of a Pilot scheme to construct it's first ever Low Energy Adaptation Project (LEAP). Construction involved the off-site prefabrication of a modular building, whilst the construction on site was to PassivHaus standards, including installation of Mechanical Ventilation Heat Recovery System

NIHE are looking at ways of developing sustainable construction methods with a view to introducing them on future procurements. This project compares traditional construction to that of German PassivHaus standards and will be used as a benchmark against this fabric first approach.
