The initial property of a potential fifty property Passivhaus development at The Hawthorns, Gretna is now complete.
McGowan Miller were appointed by client Hadrian Homes Ltd as Quantity Surveyor and Principal Designer for the initial house of the development. Discussions are ongoing regarding the next stage.
Whitehill Design Studio has designed the properties to Passivhaus standards which requires the properties to meet a vigorous list of criteria of high energy efficiency, to reduce its ecological footprint. It results in an ultra-low energy building that requires little energy for space heating or cooling.
