Fascinating visit to Beattie Passive in Bicester to see how they are building Passivhaus homes in a ‘Flying Factory’, allowing homes from self-build to social housing to be built with cost, time, health and environmental benefits

How does it work?

Beattie Passive will provide you and your in-house team with all the training and knowledge you need to begin working with your own Flying Factory. The training package consists of 5 weeks of hands-on training time.

An opportunity for four trainees to learn from our experienced team. We’ll train you to manufacture and construct the Beattie Passive build system at our Training Academy in Norwich, Norfolk.

We’ll support you to begin manufacturing from your own official Beattie Passive Flying Factory. You’ll benefit from the experience and expertise we’ve gained from our own factory and from supporting our established Flying Factory partners.

You’ll be given in-depth onsite training as you build your first house that covers the key elements of the Beattie Passive patented structural thermal envelope.

Our team will provide support, training and mentorship to share innovations and continuously improve the efficiency of your factory operations.
