At Angus Mason, our developments are geared towards the latest architectural design inspired by modern environmentally green concepts as follows.

1) Passive House

Passive house is a rigorous, voluntary standard for energy efficiency in a building, reducing its ecological footprint. It results in ultra-low energy buildings that require little energy for space heating or cooling.

A passive building is designed and built in accordance with these five building-science principles:

  • Employs contunuous insulation throughtout its entire envelope without any thernal bridging.
  • The building envelope is extremely airtight, preventing infiltration of outside air and loss of conditioned air.
  • Employs high-performance windows (typically triple-paned) and doors.
  • Uses some form of balanced heat - and moisture-recovery ventilation and a minimal space conditioning system.
  • Solar gain is managed to exploit the sun's energy for heating purposes in the heating season and to minimize overheating during the cooling season.



Passive buildings offer tremendous long-term benefits in addition to energy efficiency:

  • Superinsulation and airtight construction provide unmatched comfort even in extreme weather conditions.
  • Continuous mechanical ventilation of fresh filtered air provides superb indoor air quality.
  • A comprehensive systems approach to modeling, design, and construction produces extremely resilient buildings.
  • Offer the best path to Net Zero and Net Positive buildings by minimizing the load that renewables are required to provide.
