Passive House. Prefabricated.

At eclipse we believe in creating healthy, energy efficient homes. That’s why we’ve developed a prefabricated building system to construct Passive Houses built for the Australian environment. A Passive House is the healthiest, most high-performance home. Our prefabricated system is the most efficient way to build one.

PASSIVE HOUSE

PASSIVE HOUSE

Founded in building science, the Passive House system was developed to deliver the healthiest, most high-performance buildings available.

Passive Houses are designed to optimise natural light and warmth, while minimising unwanted airflow. This creates a truly comfortable, highly energy efficient home that’s warm in winter, cool in summer, free from uncomfortable draughts, and unhealthy dust and mould.

A Passive House owner will typically save 80-90% on heating and cooling, compared to a traditionally built home.

Our Passive Houses meet the most rigorous building performance standards in the world, delivering what’s important today and into the future: health, comfort and highest-level energy efficiency.

Not just a name…
Not any home can be certified a Passive House.

Every Passive House we build must meet the International Passive House Standard – the most rigorous building performance standard in the world.

Every Passive House must have:

  • High-performance windows
  • Super insulation
  • Airtight construction
  • No thermal bridges (ways for warmth to escape or enter your home)
  • Optimal orientation (to maximise natural light and warmth)
  • Heat recovery ventilation (letting fresh air in, without letting warm or cool air out)

Airtight Construction

Traditional site-built houses have significant air leakage, causing uncomfortable drafts, cold spots, condensation and mould.

The key to delivering all the comfort and health benefits possible for a Passive House is ensuring the home is airtight.

At eclipse our prefabricated, panelised building system is specifically designed to eliminate any air leakage in the building, so you’ll always feel comfortable – and your building will be the healthiest it can be.

The Passive House design and construction process is checked and verified by third-party certification. Passive House is the only standard that does this – no other energy rating system checks the performance of what has been built.

For absolute peace of mind, every eclipse Passive House comes with a 10-year structural and durability warranty – the highest warranty available in the construction industry.

Overview

PREFABRICATION

Our prefabricated system allows freedom of design, while providing certainty in construction.

By prefabricating elements of your home in factory-controlled conditions, we can ensure precision manufacturing, predictable delivery timeframes and quality control guaranteed to meet Passive House performance standards.

On-site construction time is reduced to a fraction of traditional builds, which reduces cost and exposure to unpredictable elements.

The freedom of prefabrication

MANUFACTURE

DELIVERY

INSTALLATION

Prefabrication doesn’t usually bring to mind design freedom, but at eclipse, our prefabricated, panelised building system allows enormous design flexibility for an architect, designer or home-owner.

Our system is highly customisable to allow you to create the home you want, on the site you have. If a timber framed building can be site-built, we can prefabricate it, deliver it to site and install it in a fraction of the time required by traditional site-built construction.
