Episode 4: Super Insulated Airtight PH Homes – TF Construction | January 27
The fourth episode of the #BPI will focus on super-insulated airtight timber frame construction to accelerate the holistic design and development of Passive House projects. Expertise, fast building techniques, along with high-quality and energy saving materials are required in assuring high-performance. To illustrate this point, we will visit the construction site of a new build Passive House in the UK to speak with Adrian Williamson and Lee Broomhall involved in the process. Adrian Williamson - Director and Chartered Architectural Technologist at WM Design & Architecture will exemplify how the adoption of intelligent strategic design of timber frame construction can maximise energy savings through its structural components, while meeting current building standards. Lee Broomhall - Sales Manager at MBC Timber Frame will talk about the PH standards, using passive timber frame wall and foundation systems, advanced manufacturing techniques that create a continuously insulated thermal envelope, resulting in superior airtightness, cold bridge-free house.
Adoption of latest technologies and modern timber frame construction methods can help achieve significant energy savings, up to 90%, and deliver extremely low U-Value, by integrating best practices manufacturing processes.

About Building Performance Interactive
The program was developed as part of a collaboration with the Accelerator and Hugh Whiriskey of Partel, who saw a need for more interactive programming to share lessons learned and best practices from the explosion of Passive House projects happening close to our original markets. “It started with a strong determination to support the transformation of the low-carbon building sector towards nZEB and Passive House through a new perspective, based on a collaborative approach,” Whiriskey said.
Format of BPI - virtual miniseries
Building Performance Interactive (BPI) - Design it. Shape it. Build it. is virtual and free to attend, focused on inclusivity, collaboration, and the elevation of high-performance building as its guiding principles. Episodes will provide a platform for audiences in continental Europe, Ireland, and the United Kingdom to learn about Passive House design principles, nZEB (nearly zero energy building) techniques, and other high-performance building methodologies that can help ensure compliance with the increasingly rigorous standards and policy goals of governments throughout the UK, Ireland, and Europe.
Each episode will be 60 minutes comprising of live learning sessions featuring informative video and technical presentations, case studies, roundtable, and opportunities for Q&A discussion.
