Saint Gobain Isover a/s is the instigator of the project which builds on international experience
Behind the initiative is Saint Gobain Isover a/s. In its capacity as the world’s leading producer of insulation materials, the ISOVER group has a natural interest in promoting knowledge of how to reduce a building’s energy consumption. At international level, ISOVER is an active contributor to many projects using passive heating. Know-how and experience are harnessed together in the concept of the ISOVER MultiComfort House.
This knowledge is now being transferred to Denmark, where the aim is to build up a network of architects, contractors, consultants, standard house builders and manufacturers of building materials who will work to spread the passive house concept.
The KOMFORT HUSENE project in the Skibet area is based on the company KOMFORT HUSENE A/S, which is jointly owned by Zeta Invest A/S and Middelfart Sparekasse (Savings Bank). Both have sound experience in the housing market.
The houses will be designed and built in accordance with Danish building practice. Sizes are expected to vary between 170 and 250 square metres.
Construction is expected to start in the third quarter of 2007, and the houses will be put up for sale at the end of the exhibition in the third quarter of 2008.
