We're the experts in all things Passivhaus

What we do

Made In The UK

We’ve built over 500 energy efficient low and net zero carbon homes

Our clients choose to work with us because we help them overcome the challenges they’re facing in the housing sector. We’re in the midst of a housing crisis and rates of homelessness are rising. Fuel poverty is a blight on society and the climate emergency demands immediate action as we collectively strive to reach Net Zero by 2050.

The homes are energy efficient and eco-friendly

“We build all our homes to the Passivhaus standard. We also help our clients to decarbonise their existing housing stock by retrofitting to the EnerPHit standard”

Ron Beattie

Founder and Managing Director, Beattie Passive

Whether you’re looking for an offsite specialist for a modular development, a partner to bring your self-build project to life, or a professional retrofit company to decarbonise your social housing stock, we’re the experts in all things Passivhaus. Our Passivhaus build system has no limitations and we offer full design flexibility, regardless of size, style or shape.

Sadly, much of the housing being built today will need to be retrofitted, at significant cost, in the future. At Beattie Passive, we want to be a part of the solution, not the problem. With that in mind, we build to clear energy performance benchmarks that meet environmental standards, using sustainable materials, including timber.

By definition, a net zero home produces as much energy as it consumes. It stands to reason then, that it’s considerably easier to achieve Net Zero when a home is already highly energy efficient. Because of their low energy demands, Passivhaus properties are already primed for Net Zero – we simply add a renewable energy source, such as PV panels, to balance out the energy consumption.

But the benefits don’t end there. You’ll also enjoy remarkably low energy bills, better ventilation, superior indoor air quality, and thermal comfort throughout the year.

The cost of living is on everyone’s mind at the moment. But what if we told you there was a way to wrestle back control of your heating bills? And not only that, but you could even achieve net zero while you’re at it?

The cheapest and most renewable energy will always be the energy you don’t use. Passivhaus is up to 100% more energy efficient than traditional housing. With Passivhaus, you’re not only insulating your home. You’re also insulating yourself against the soaring cost of energy, both now and in the future. Just think about how much you could save.

As you would expect, given the current circumstances, interest in energy efficient housing is skyrocketing. Give our team a call today to learn more about the extraordinary energy-saving benefits of Passivhaus.

Did you know that the built environment is responsible for around 40% of global carbon emissions? Without a doubt, our sector has a pivotal role to play in the race to reach Net Zero by 2050.

“It’s now or never” – The IPCC, 2022

Passivhaus is the gold standard for energy efficient, healthy, low carbon homes. Improving the nation’s housing in the UK will save lives, prevent disease, improve quality of life, reduce poverty, and help fight climate change.

Let’s get to work and build a brighter, cleaner, greener and more prosperous future for everyone.

We can’t talk about low carbon or net zero homes without talking about retrofit. Given that 80% of the buildings that we will use in 2050 have already been built, constructing new homes is simply not enough. We must decarbonise our existing housing stock and we must do it now.

At Beattie Passive, we retrofit to the EnerPHit standard (the official Passivhaus standard for existing buildings). Retrofitting will be absolutely essential if we’re to meet our zero carbon commitments, but it also has huge benefits for homeowners, housing providers and tenants.

Retrofitting makes homes more energy efficient, more economical and more comfortable. It’s no exaggeration to say that retrofitting can prevent people from falling into fuel poverty. Retrofitting is also a great option if you can’t find land or you’re looking to renovate, remodel or extend your home.

Don’t forget to take a look through some of our retrofit case studies.

Our factory partners are located all over the UK.

Beattie Passive brings new employment opportunities and social value to local communities, along with healthier homes.

By entering into a factory partnership with Beattie Passive, we will help you to emulate what we’ve achieved at our own offsite manufacturing factory in Norwich, Norfolk. We’ll share our knowledge, expertise and experience with you, so you can build modular, energy efficient, net zero housing in your own community.

Establishing a modular factory in your region will benefit your local community. Independent industry analyst CERCULA calculates the social return on a Modular Factory Partnership is £3.19 for every £1 spent.
