Some of our Design team recently visited the Pro Clima Hub in Penrose, Auckland. The Hub is a one-of-a-kind facility showcasing advanced building systems for healthy, energy efficient and durable buildings, and providing training for building professionals. The facility has an actual Passive House built inside it, which was really interesting for our team! Passive Houses result in ultra-low energy buildings that require little energy for heating or cooling.
