We are working with a client that wants to develop an exemplar dwelling, but feels that Passiv Haus/Gold standard may be too onerous. They are interested in complying with the Carbonlite Silver standard though. Would you be able to respond to the following queries:
• Is it possible to get a housing design certified to Carbonlite Silver standard, and if so, what is the process to make this happen.
• What guidance can AECB offer for houses wishing to comply with the Silver standard, and how much would this approximately cost.
• What information is required to ensure the design can meet with the criteria set out (i.e. does the house need to go through SAP or even PHPP modelling).
I would be most grateful for any more information regarding this process. Hopefully hear from you soon.
