The Tooley & Foster Partnership - Passivhaus Council Housing, Crawley Borough Council

The Tooley & Foster Partnership

13 Passivhaus dwellings for Council Housing for Crawley Borough Council




Gales Place is the first certified Passivhaus project completed by TFP's subsidiary, Accredited Passivhaus Design's for Crawley Borough Council to provide affordable housing for local residents.

This new development is located on a complex site and provides a new urban space next to an existing community centre, safe routes to the adjacent primary school and car parking for residents and other local people. It provides six flats and seven houses built to the high comfort and low bills of the Passivhaus standard.

With triple glazing, lots of insulation and a ventilation system providing filtered pre-warmed air the heating bills for a typical 2 bedroom house are predicted to be about £15 per month or less than 50p per day.

As council housing is provided for people in housing need, the low energy use of these Passivhaus homes will make a strong contribution to reducing fuel poverty with very low bills for residents, and with the knock-on benefit to the landlord of low rent arrears. Also, the good construction quality of these dwellings will ensure durability and comfort for the future.
