Contact Information

The demonstration site is located in Stambruges, 24 km from the city of Mons. It consists of a wood-based envelope house aimed at demonstrating the construction of passive house. The key design strategies are a wood-based structure, large insulation, efficient glazing and a passive house concept. The house might be further developed to be a positive energy house thanks to the installation of photovoltaic panels. The energy performance of the building is determined by a complete measurement system with data acquisition and treatment.

The construction started in February 2015 and finished in November 2015. The building monitoring started in December 2015, when the occupants arrived.

*Information regarding the technical and financial performance will be available at a later stage.

The building in Stambruges has a total surface of 219 m2. The energy demand is mostly electrical but a wood-burning stove installed in the house provides the space heating. According to the monitoring data, the current primary energy consumption of the building is 34 kWh/m2/yr.
