Technical Investigation

The Technical Investigation module focussed on the evaluation of sustainability. This was conducted as group and individual work. The group work comprised of pairs researching and analysing the sustainability features associated with their given case study before ranking and comparing the buildings as a wider group. For my individual study, I researched the extent to which passivhaus principles could contribute towards achieving ‘truly’ sustainable architecture.

My Technical Investigation report researched the following question: Is it possible for a building to achieve true net zero carbon emissions without the implementation of passivhaus principles?
