Polaris Passivhaus Consult + Construct are your turnkey specialist consultancy and contracting delivery partner (and sister company of Polaris Passivhaus Developments) that have full capability of delivering all types of Passivhaus, EnerPHit or Low Energy Building project. We provide our services to all aspects of the construction market from individual dwellings all the way up to complex mixed-use schemes.
We are able to provide assistance from the early concept design stages, through to project management, on-site delivery, and final commissioning and handover.
Sustainability, biodiversification, ecological improvement, community engagement, innovation and build quality are at the core of the Company’s ethos and form part of the mandatory checklist of vital prerequisites for all consultancy and delivery roles.
For us, the principles of Passivhaus (and EnerPHit for retrofit projects) truly represent that apex of sustainable design and development.

Polaris Passivhaus Developments are a new property development company created for the purpose of delivering innovative residential, commercial and retail spaces. We proactively seek to break the development mould by delivering carbon positive projects that combine biophilic design and Passivhaus (Passive House) or EnerPHit (for our Retrofit projects) certification as a minimum standard.
Again, Sustainability, biodiversification, ecological improvement, community engagement, innovation and build quality are at the core of the Company's ethos and form part of the mandatory checklist of vital prerequisites for all our developments. Where practicable, we intend to utilise carbon positive materials that are sustainably sourced (such as timber) and intend to place off-site manufacture (or prefabrication) as one of the key requirements for on-site delivery.
For us, the principles of Passivhaus (and EnerPHit) represent the apex of sustainable design and development. Utilising readily available techniques, that have been available to us for over a quarter of a century, you are able to create truly energy efficient, comfortable, healthy and superior living + work spaces.
We want to create beautiful sustainable places that truly enhance our environment whilst providing luxurious settings that will stimulate, enthuse and inspire.
What makes our developments outstanding?
Passivhaus performance benefits far more than just the environment. Our developments provide our customers with considerably reduced heating and electric running costs. Where it is feasible to integrate renewable energy technologies into our schemes it is possible to see no running costs at all and, in the best-case, it could generate an income (for example selling excess electricity back to the grid). Our properties are capable of reducing heating bills by up to 90% which, when assessed over the lifetime of the building, accumulates into a considerable sum of money saved.
Our projects will also improve people’s health. For example, the integration of biophilic design creates a connection back to the natural environment which has been proven to enhance our mental wellbeing. Another would be the incorporation of Mechanical Vent Heat Recovery systems (MVHR - a Passivhaus standard). This system removes the warm moist stale air, extracts the heat from said warm air and pumps it out of the building, whilst in tandem supplying fresh clean filtered air that is pre-warmed by the heat exchanger and then distributed around the remainder of the property. This process reduces CO2 levels and other particulate build up which are known to cause effects such as headaches, dizziness, and fatigue whilst also controlling the humidity and temperature, preventing the ideal conditions that facilitate the growth of dust mites and mould spores.
We are proud that not only will our developments reduce the impacts to our environment, they will deliver light, healthy and unsurpassed quality living and workspaces.
Carbon positive means that with every activity we will do everything possible to go beyond achieving net zero carbon emissions to create an environmental benefit by removing additional carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere.
Biophilic design is a concept used within the construction industry that seeks to connect building occupants more closely to nature through clever and innovative architecture. Biophilic designed buildings incorporate things like direct & indirect nature, natural lighting & ventilation, natural landscape features and other elements to create a more productive and healthier built environment for people.
Prefabrication seeks to integrate key building components that are manufactured off-site. By taking elements of the build off site and constructing them in a controlled factory environment, you are able to streamline processes and enhance efficiency from every angle.
This in turn generates significant savings in time and cost, boosts quality and reduces the impact on the environment. Reduced transportation / lifting of materials, a reduction in the number of people travelling to site and fewer people using the site accommodation are just some of the key environmental advantages’ pre-fabrication has to offer.
Should prefabrication not be suitable then we will target the use of Modern Methods of Construction (also known as MMC).
Where does the name 'Polaris' originate?
Before the technology and eventual digital revolution the 'North Star' also known as 'Polaris' was used as a point of reference during night sea navigation. It became a symbol and beacon that guided hundreds of thousands in the right direction.
This is exactly what we aim to become with our Company. To be the symbol and beacon for all developments, guiding and setting the principles and standards that all should be implementing now with the aim to secure our future.
