AeroBarrierUK helping ambitious developers beat Passivhaus


Nailsea, North Somerset

Air Leakage Reduction


Currently building a collection of 52 Passivhaus sustainable new homes in Nailsea, North Somerset, Stonewood Homes recognise the importance of energy efficiency, indoor air quality, and overall building performance.

Stonewood Homes face challenges consistently achieving the desired airtightness levels across their housing development projects. Conventional methods often fall short of delivering the required results, leading to compromised energy efficiency and increased operating costs.

Partnering with AeroBarrierUK to implement their cutting-edge sealing technology in the construction of the Elm Grove housing development, they are using innovative solutions to surpass industry standards. AeroBarrierUK technicians are currently working closely with Stonewood Homes’ construction team to integrate the sealing process seamlessly into the building workflow.


“This remarkable achievement signifies Stonewood Homes’ commitment to excellence in building performance and sustainability, all through setting new benchmark for industry airtightness standards.”
