Open Construction Day

In eHaus News, Events by glenda1 Comment

Open Construction Days give you a unique opportunity to see PassiveHaus features first hand during the building process!

On October 24th this build will be air tight and the high performance windows will be installed. Come and check it out before the interior walls are lined.

Experiencing an eHaus sets it apart from a standard code built house. See the construction and talk to the builders!

Where:  123 Leyland Road, Whakamarama, Tauranga

Time: 4.00-7.00pm


  1. I plan to visit. Would like to discuss options in building a livable basement below grade with 2.7m stud. Seek to have window to allow light/ventilation/egress. Like idea of concrete for heat sink.

    Is this doable? & would like ideas on how close we can go to boundary (OSH point of view). We are on volcanic with places with basalt rock.

    Do passivHaus use prefab concrete slabs & if so what is max span without support of piers.
