Arvio can add significant value to your project by using the proven Passivhaus® methodology to take the guesswork out of sustainable design.
We overlay a combination of materials, technologies and design elements without impacting your vision, significantly improving the energy efficiency of the building.
Thermal Energy Modelling
Using the Passivhaus® Planning Package we model your building’s thermal energy. This calculates the annual space heating and cooling balances as well as the electricity and primary energy demand of the building.
DesignBuilder identifies critical thermal loads in the building with the energy calculation engine EnergyPlus 8.3, which is well recognised among many scientific leaders and professionals all over the world.
Having built multiple passive houses we can provide practical independent advice & collaborate with your Architect & builder.
Based on the thermal energy modelling we address condensation management and electrical grid interaction by creating technical designs for your HVAC, energy generation and storage system.
On-Site Quality Assurance
As Arvio has gained valuable experience as builder for net-zero energy buildings, our team is aware of the specific obstacles on site.
We provide a periodic on-site inspections and feedback to you and your builder so issues can be dealt with promptly.
