Re: Passivhaus + triple glazing

Passivhaus is a German building system that involves much more than 3G windows. A DG firm won't necessarily know about whole house systems such as PH. For 3G windows try Russell Timbertech - no connection.

Re: Experiences of planners in Sussex?

Having done a few rounds with the planners (not Sussex but it's the same everywhere), the only advice I can give you is: 1. Go through their pre-application process. It is normally free. 2. Read all their policies and make sure you highlight the relevant favourable points in your application. 3. Alt...

If you go for Big Al's green roof option you can use a good quality thick pond liner for your waterproof membrane.

Make things more simple and depression would decrease I think.
