SoLow Passive Housing

'SoLow' is Setanta Construction's latest energy efficient housing project. 

With growing concerns about rising energy costs, climate change, affordable and available housing, Setanta Construction has met these challenges head on by designing and completely manufacturing a high-quality volumetric house constructed to complete Passive House standards.

Compared to conventional building techniques, a Passive build is designed and constructed to be highly energy efficient and is the gold standard when it comes to low energy eco homes.  A passive house can consume up to 90 per cent less energy than a typical home, not only helping the environment but helping homeowners save money too.
