Covid 19 - Impact on Hub South East operations

Blackridge Nursery

We’re excited to have delivered the first public non-domestic building designed and constructed to Passivhaus standards in Scotland. As all new capital projects are being challenged to drive towards higher performance whilst reducing operational maintenance and running consists over the building lifecycle, an increasingly popular solution is to design to Passivhaus standard. This is a quality assured process, developed by the Passivhaus Institute in Germany, and provides a high level of occupant comfort whilst using very little energy for heating and cooling.

We are delighted to take an important step forward in delivering the new nursery at Blackridge. As the first public nursery built to Passivhaus standards, it will provide a fantastic resource for the growing younger population in the Blackridge community it serves. This nursery shows West Lothian Council’s commitment to achieving zero carbon targets and the climate change emergency declared by the Council in September 2019.
