The New South West College, Erne Campus will be the first Passivhaus Premium Education building in the UK. Currently on-site, construction is due to complete in January 2020.
Located on the site of a former hospital in Enniskillen, and covering a treated floor area of 7,115m2, the new education facility will house almost 850 students & staff and is also aiming for BREEAM Outstanding.
This new build contrasts starkly with the existing campus building (8,898m2) which in 2017 used 118 kWh/m2/year and burned over 100,000l of heating oil at a cost of circa £58,000 pounds. This new building represents a 93% reduction in the cost of energy for heating which will equate to a predicted £54,000 per year in heating savings alone.
