Foxrock Retrofit

Foxrock Retrofit

Project Description:

This project represents a first in Ireland in the retrofitting of a conventional build dwelling to a Passive House. The red-bricked cavity wall home in South Dublin is being completely refurbished to an extremely low energy building, with super-insulation, triple glazed windows, airtight detailing, mechanical ventilation with heat recovery, solar panels and biomass boiler.

The Clients visited MosArt’s demonstration passive house in 2006 and were inspired to convert their home to the same standard of comfort and energy efficiency.

Achieving the passive house standard in such a conversion is extremely challenging and requires excellent detailing and a committed input on the part of the building contractor.
