Oxford Humanities

Etude are the Passivhaus designers, providing in depth design consultancy from RIBA Stages 2-6 on what could become the largest Passivhaus in the UK, and the first Passivhaus certified concert hall. We have coordinated  thermal performance with the architect, structural and MEP engineers, façade consultant, theatre consultant and other specialists. This complex project requires a high degree of communication and interaction across the design team.

Predicted operational energy calculations and thermal performance analysis using PHPP were undertaken in collaboration with Max Fordham to demonstrate compliance with the University’s comprehensive in-house sustainability design guide.

The building construction started in January 2023 and is ongoing.
