"I have recently completed the Passivhaus Tradesperson Course delivered by Whole House Energy. It was clear from the outset that the Whole House Energy team had a wealth of experience and knowledge of the subject area and delivered the training with real passion. The course itself was given in Norwich and included a number of opportunities to see some of the principal Passivhaus building elements at first hand. I am pleased to recommend Whole House Energy for the Passivhaus Tradesperson course.

"Hudson Architects collaborated with Whole House Energy on the design of a Paragraph 55 house in North Norfolk. They worked within the constraints of an unusual brief to incorporate Passivhaus concepts, negative embodied carbon and zero in-use carbon status, in to a modern house built with traditional thatch and flint construction. Marrying these aspirations for sustainability with local and traditional building materials and techniques was a difficult task, and Whole House Energy rose to the challenge. Their renowned commitment to energy reduction was demonstrated in their inventive approach; designing holistically to deliver an innovative, contemporary and comfortable family home."

They have worked tirelessly as part of a complex design team. Having easy access the broad expertise, practical experience and detailed knowledge of the whole team at Whole House Energy has proved invaluable with support available on everything from timber frame supplier short-listing to concrete types to detailed interstitial condensation analysis. We've valued the friendly and flexible approach."

"Andrew Fisher has a real understanding of what it is to build. His construction background means he understands the challenges of moving from the drawing board to reality. This sets him apart from others we have worked with, when a construction issue became apparent, he was on site getting his hands dirty to find a solution. The stringent criteria required to meet Passiv Haus accreditation needs an extra effort by all. Working with individuals, subcontractors and site agents Andrew introduced us all to the principles and methods of PH construction, and ensured the simple problems on site mistakes could create were avoided. I don’t doubt that the success of the construction owes much to Whole House Energy’s input."

"Whole House Energy provide more than just Passivhaus modelling, they offer a holistic approach with a “can do” attitude that is commercially focused. They offered valuable contribution to achieving ‘buildable' solutions. They are committed to increasing the capacity of delivering Passivhaus to the region and we are aware of many contractors using their services to up-skill their team. They are a professional and committed company and we would have no hesitation in using them again.

"Broadland Housing Association is a demanding client looking to develop high performing low energy buildings. This has required a sea change in the approach of its consultant and contractor teams to deliver successful schemes on the ground. Andrew Fisher played a pivotal role in the detailed design and delivery of the Association’s first Passivhaus scheme at Fulmodeston in North Norfolk. This involved implementing new supply chains and quality control processes on site, which led to successful accreditation of the project to this demanding environmental standard. The scheme went on to be recognised as the Best New Affordable Housing Scheme at the national industry awards."

"'Our training session with Andrew Fisher was a highly effective way of learning the fundamentals of PHPP, and even some advanced parameters that inform crucial design decisions. Andrew knows his subject very thoroughly and his manner makes initiation to PHPP very unintimidating. It was an intensive morning, but the information was well presented giving us the confidence to implement learnt outcomes independently.'

""Please accept my thanks for the excellent Certified Passivhaus Designer course provided by Whole House Energy. Although the material was taxing at times (as it had to be), the course was delivered in a light hearted and open format which was accessible, and provided regular opportunities to ask questions, practice real life examples, and to interact with the delivery. I was very impressed by, and grateful for, the expert tuition offered by renowned guest lecturers. This was certainly a cut above other training which I have done in the past. So seminal was their guidance, I am confident that the learning provided will revolutionise the way we design and detail even within our non-Passivhaus projects."
