Eastlands Homes have awarded Casey the UK's first large-scale PassivHaus retrofit project to be undertaken in occupied properties.

Eastlands Homes is applying the principles of the PassivHaus to achieve the much lauded EnerPHit Standard, as recognised by the PassivHaus Institute, to refurbish 32 apartments in Longsight as part of its Decent Homes programme.  It is the first large-scale adoption in the UK of this approach, and also the first time it has been carried out while residents continue living in the properties.  Excellent resident liaison will be key to this scheme, and the Casey Resident Liaison Team will be working hard to ensure a high quality finish with minimum disruption.

The works comprise an external envelope upgrade to PassivHaus Enerphit standards, including new flat roof, external insulation and cladding, high performance windows and doors, improvements to communal areas, new waste management area and associated hard and soft landscaping works including a bespoke community led public realm scheme.  Internal improvements include enhanced insulation and general Decent Homes works comprising new kitchen, bathroom, associated electrical and plumbing works, insulation of solid floors, decoration and a new mechanical ventilation heat recovery system.
