Harlow Timber Systems supply Ireland's largest Passivhaus site

Harmony Timber Solutions has worked with Durkan Residential on the largest Passivhaus site to date in Ireland – Silken Park Development, Dublin. Durkan Residential planned and designed the Silken Park Development to meet modern demands in comfort and energy efficiency.

The Silken Park Development has achieved and been certified to the Passivhaus standard. Passivhaus certification guarantees that the development is airtight, super-efficient and maintains regular levels of heat and ventilation for a healthier living environment. For the modern home owner, this means that energy bills will be significantly reduced.

The Silken Park Development is located in a sought-after prime location in South Dublin. The surrounding backdrop and infrastructure is in high demand and with the combination of location and high specification the development stands at the forefront of modern building. Harmony Timber Solutions supplied Open Metal Web Joists (Posi Joists) and timber roof trusses.

The company says: “By opting to use our Posi Joists, Durkan Residential had the flexibility to locate its mechanical and electrical requirement without compromising on the flooring structure. Our roof truss team worked closely to provide an engineered roof structure to suit the solution towards reducing the cold bridging at various junctions. Although timber frame was not required for this development it is suited to this style of construction. We have many solutions to assist with achieving Passivhaus standards using a timber frame structure.”
