What is a high performance house?
A high performance home excels at efficiently providing a safe, healthy and comfortable environment for its occupants to live in.
High Performance Homes can be achieved with any design or building budget by utilising the 4 key principles of performance (ventilation, air tightness, materials & insulation), you can achieve super liveability and energy consumption with any style, design or budget.
Kane Build Group is leading the way in designing & building High-Performing, Energy Efficient homes that are healthier for occupants, amazingly comfortable, beautifully designed, and greatly reduce harmful effects on the environment through eco-friendly design.

Less chance of damp and mould developing
High Performance Houses built with SIPs
A lot of High Performance houses are often made with SIPs (Structural Insulated Panels). SIPs are high performance thermally efficient composite panels which consist of a sandwich of two layers of structurally laminated board with an insulating layer of foam in between. This creates a high performing building panel for walls, floors and ceilings. When a building is to be constructed in SIPs, a number of panels are connected together replacing the traditional method of timber framing and batt insulation

What is a Passive House?
A passive house is designed to be extremely energy-efficient so that it doesn’t take a lot of power to heat or cool.
The key elements of a Passive House is – airtightness, insulation, quality glazing, mechanical ventilation and reduced thermal bridges. These are the basis of a warmer, drier, healthier, more energy efficient home.
All Certified Passive Houses are modelled with the Passive House Planning Programme (PHPP) and Blower door tested to ensure they meet the standard.
