Eco Friendly Modular Buildings that leave no carbon footprint once installed.
A net zero building generates as much energy as it consumes over the course of a year. Our modulars are supplied zero energy ready, meaning the infrastructure needed for solar panels is already built in. By adding solar panels to generate electricity and heat water, combined with a space designed to passive house standards, you will be able to generate as much energy as consumed over the course of a year.
A key attribute to achieving the net zero rating is that our modulars are designed and based on German passive house standards. This concept is a proven method in constructing very eco efficient homes and consist mainly of the principles below.
The best way to describe the insulation is like a very warm jacket in winter that shelters you from the elements. The steel container is surrounded by a thick layer of insulation maintaining a comfortable temperate internally, whatever the weather.
Passive homes are sealed so that they are air tight, preventing draughts that cause energy loss. After the the insulation installed and plasterboard fitted the structure is sealed and tested, with the triple glazed windows installed to complete the external structure.
A thermal bridge is created when materials that have a higher level thermal conductivity allow energy to be exchanged. By removing these we can ensure energy is not used to counteract this effect, improving the buildings overall efficiency.
The triple glazing serves as energy collectors, helping buildings maintain heat even in the winter months.
The Ventilation ensures there is fresh air circulated around the house all year round. This technology also prevents heat from escaping.
The house should be located so that the sun shines through the large window in the winter, whilst in the summer a shadow is formed under a window overhang to prevent the house from heating up.
