- Associated Architects and building contractor Speller Metcalfe
The Multi-Comfort building concept, launched in the UK at EcoBuild, takes a holistic approach to the design and construction of buildings so that Multi-Comfort buildings are efficient, comfortable and have a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of everyone who uses them. Multi-Comfort buildings surpass existing Building Regulations, incorporate the energy efficiency and thermal comfort standards set by Passivhaus, and introduce new standards in the areas of audio, indoor-air and visual comfort.
The JJI-Joists and Glulam supplied by Pasquill are being used in the form of eight curved portal frames as the main structure of the building, together with associated straight and cambered beams. The engineered timber JJI-Joists are forming stud walls, and more JJI-Joists are also being used in the roof. JJI-Joists used in the walls in this way have created the ideal wall depth required for the insulation used, and all of the products will help the building to achieve both Passivhaus and Multi-Comfort standards.
