Shou Sugi Ban for County Meath Passive House


Shou Sugi Ban for County Meath Passive House

We are delighted that our latest Passive House in Co. Meath, is nearing completion!

A final air test result of 0.57ach was achieved and is a credit to all involved including Denis Kealy of Keamc ConstructionLong Life Structures and Roman of Clioma House.

This Passive House building is clad in a European sourced and scorched Douglas fir, supplied by Noir de Bois, using a Japanese technique called Shou Sugi Ban, meaning burned cedar.

This method has provided an excellent cladding which is durable, low maintenance, is environmentally friendly as it does not contain any added chemicals or toxins AND has also contributed to a low embodied carbon footprint for the building.
