The development of a garden city in Bicester is including a large number of homes built and certified to the Passivhaus standard, with the specialist company involved making use of Magply boards for three separate roles. At Graven Hill, Beattie Passive has established a ‘flying factory’ on site to fabricate panels and modules for various properties; including terraces, while the detached coach houses are being stick-built. One of these will feature two bedrooms, flexible living spaces and an integral garage behind rendered elevations. The 9mm Magply boards supplied have been specified to offer 90 minutes fire resistance as well as racking strength, acoustic insulation and as the render backing board.
