New Passivhaus building at Hull Maritime project will be exceptionally energy efficient 5 Mar 2021

A new two-storey  building planned at the Hull Maritime project to act as a visitor centre for the sidewinder trawler ‘Arctic Corsair’ will make energy savings of around 90%, and has been described by Hull City Council as “one of the most energy efficient buildings in the UK’s cultural and heritage sector”. The 500m² Passivhaus building will use heat exchangers to stay warm in winter and cool in summer. Even on winter days with no sun warming the building, it will be able to heat the exhibition area with energy equivalent to one small domestic plug-in heater. The project is expected to be completed by 2023. M + H, Museums Journal, Hull Daily Mail   Also: Julie's Bicyle has published a new briefing on how to 'price in' carbon for the cultural sector.
