New Case Study: Passivhaus Plus School with Solar Green roof

Last year Optigreen worked alongside partner company DF Roofing on the Hackbridge Primary School in Mitcham (London). The building has been designed by Architype to be the first Passivhaus Plus school in the UK. The aim was to effectively meet net-zero carbon targets by combining the Passivhaus levels of energy-efficiency by using renewables to generate as much energy as the building consumes throughout the year.

Working alongside Optigreen partner DF Roofing, we were able to design a system that incorporated an extensive wildflower & sedum green roof combined with a 252 PV modular layout. This £9m scheme is part of the One Planet Sutton initiative which aims to demonstrate sustainable lifestyles and help promote global green economy
