This 19 unit passive house student accommodation project in Dunedin is nearing completion.

The primary structure of the building is cross laminated timber. The external access and amenity decks are also constructed of mass timber to further reduce the carbon footprint of the building. The external walls are all 140mm timber framed walls with fiberglass batts insulation. The windows are triple glazed uPVC tilt and turn windows. Each of the units is serviced by a Zehnder Comfoair 180 ventilation unit in the kitchen cupboards.
