The Passivhaus Certified Building Total Envelope System - opaque and transparent elements, above and below ground, off-site constructed
B&F's sister company gains the prized gold standard of certificates from the Passivhaus Institute (PHI) in Germany. The GroundZero is an offsite constructed foundation system; GroundZero ICF is the world's highest performance Insulated Concrete Formwork system and is the first choice for basement construction. The Axios Trousse is a panelised larsen truss wall and roof cassette timber frame/SIPS hybrid. Together they make a Passivhaus Certified Building Total Envelope System, described by the Passivhaus Institute at Darmstadt system as probably the most compete system they've ever assessed. Here is the draft certificate, awaiting the great Dr. Wolfgang Feist's signature.
