Moving forward with the Passive House project!

Today was a very important day in the building of the Polyurethanes Passive House; everyone, ranging from the architect to ISOPA, came together to discuss the building plan so that we can bring you the next steps of an already fast moving construction site.

Introducing the Polyurethanes Passive House project

A while ago we decided to build a passive house to illustrate what we have been saying about polyurethanes for years: it is sustainable, comfortable and versatile. We therefore had the idea to build a house according to one of the most efficient construction standards, the passive house standard. But we wanted to do so using polyurethane materials wherever we could. Today we are pleased to launch the project and the website www.polyurethanes.org/passivehouse, where you will be able to follow the construction process step by step.
