Reducing the cost of healthcare buildings with Passivhaus

Hailed as the UK’s greenest GP surgery and a major milestone for Passivhaus and modular construction, Foleshill Health Centre is the most energy-efficient public building in the NHS estate. 

The contribution Passivhaus can make in the fight against climate change is well documented. This publication provides an overview of research examining the economic case for Passivhaus construction. It captures detailed cost and energy usage data from two NHS health centres built in 2008 and 2014. Then compares these figures against projected data for the same buildings, but this time constructed to the Passivhaus Classic standard.

The findings in this report were a key contribution to the business case for Foleshill and an important milestone for the NHS and its aim to be ‘net zero’ by 2040.
