Low Energy Adaptation Project (LEAP)

Building to PassivHaus standards

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
