To support our face-to-face Self-Build Academy courses and events, we have developed an extensive knowledge base to guide you on your self-build journey.

The articles below discuss the eight stages of building a Passivhaus property, with commentary from Self Build Director Paul Newman, Project Manager Brent Ackerman and Architect Rory Bergin from HTA Design LLP.

This project resulted in the proud achievement of the Elsworth show home — the UK's first permanent show home built to Passivhaus standard.

Our Elsworth show home opened September 2016 and was built using the Kingspan TEK Building System. It is the UK's first show home built to Passivhaus standard and is open to the public. Visit our show centre page for more information.

Open Mon-Fri 9-5 & Saturday 10-4
