Agar Grove, Camden – Passivhaus redevelopment

The redevelopment of Agar Grove in the London Borough of Camden is set to become the UK’s biggest certified Passivhaus, when complete. The first block of 38 flats (Phase 1a) were completed in April 2018 and the project was certified as an EnerPHit project in May 2018.

The estate is being redeveloped as part of Camden Council’s Community Investment Programme and will double the amount of housing available on the same site following the regeneration. Camden Council was attracted by the triple benefits to carbon emissions, comfort and cost for its residents.

Enhabit provided onsite QA and advice on buildability to Hill, the developer of the project. Enhabit also provided the airtightness testing services, enlisting the help of Paul Jennings to perform the largest ever pressure test of its kind in the UK.

The Agar Grove Phase 1a project has been shortlisted in the Large Projects category of the UK Passivhaus Awards 2021.
