Designs for series production can still be mould-breaking
As part of the Circuitus 2.0 pilot project, a single occupancy house to passive house standards has been developed for series construction in Sweden. This state-of-the-art passive house combines a ‘circular economy’ approach with demanding requirements in terms of comfort, quality and efficiency. The ecological footprint of these houses has been kept to a minimum during fabrication and construction and also over the entire service life of the buildings. Sustainable solutions and materials characterise the Circuitus 2.0 project, which is recyclable to a significant extent.
pro clima products were used in the airtightness layer on the walls and window joints, and for weather protection under roof covering.
