Outstanding performance

Trivselhus Climate ShieldTM is your first step to delivering a zero carbon building. An interior with exceptionally low space heating requirements is an ideal platform to add other ecofriendly technologies, such as under-floor heating from air-source heat pumps and mechanical heat recovery ventilation systems.

Statutory regulations

Developers and architects need more cost effective ways of meeting regulatory requirements. Building Regulations demand increasing levels of energy efficiency when constructing and running buildings.
