These homes require just an eighth of the heating energy you need for an average house. Judges said, “In one of the most competitive and innovative categories, Willmott Dixon edged it with the judges through a pioneering project that has deployed Passivhaus principles and an array of clean technologies to slash energy bills and emissions for residents. The judges praised a ‘forward thinking concept' that had clearly prioritised environmental and social outcomes while delivering a wide range of new technologies.”

The eight home Palomar Court for Be First using our Collida technology platform is just the start of a new generation of greener, cheaper and healthier homes!
