Due to the changes in the energy standards for housing in Poland there are many concerns. Is the standard required by the regulation achievable and if it is, then at what cost?
There are many solutions to construct a building in line with the requirements of passive house technology. They are differentiated by price and time required for implementation. This study is based on the solution proposed by one of Polish companies, offering technologically integrated products allowing, according to the producer, to build passive houses faster and easier. The goal of this study was to confront producer’s claim with reality by comparing time and cost of the same investment using conventional and passive house technology. The basis for time and cost analysis was a basic detached house design, partially modified with regards to materials and technology used.
Conclusions of the study are based on the comparison of the two Gantt charts defined in Ms Project. Construction schedule was used to analyse the duration of both projects and the resources assignment was used in cost analysis.
