Up­ta­ke of nat­ive Cer­ti­fied Pass­ive Hou­se Com­pon­ents by the Chi­ne­se pass­ive con­struc­ti­on sec­tor - a gap ana­lys­is

Re­cent years have seen wide­spread ad­op­tion of Pass­ive House in China, both for build­ings and con­struc­tion products. This pa­per ex­am­ines which loc­ally man­u­fac­tured con­struc­tion sys­tems, win­dows and HVAC units are be­ing used in Chinese de­vel­op­ments, with a view to spot­ting trends and op­por­tun­it­ies.

Cli­mate-ap­pro­pri­ate design changes for Pass­ive House that em­ploys Cross Lam­in­ated Tim­ber in Aus­trali­an hot-hu­mid cli­mate us­ing a well-re­ceived case study. Achieved through as­sess­ment of design solu­tions and hy­gro­therm­al ana­lys­is to in­form an op­tim­ised CLT en­vel­ope as­sembly.
