The Saint-Gobain Multi-Comfort program builds on the Passivhaus principles of delivering the highest thermal comfort and reducing CO2 emissions while combining excellent acoustic and visual comfort with superb internal air quality, fire protection and safety.
To further the understanding of the Saint Gobain Multi-Comfort program each year we run Architectural Student Design Competition based on Multi-Comfort House and Passivhaus principles.
Life in a Saint Gobain Multi-Comfort program has many advantages for occupants. As well as unparalleled comfort and contentment, inhabitants will benefit from a sense of wellbeing that penetrates every corner of the building coupled with the reassurance that they are living a more sustainable lifestyle to help preserve our natural environment for generations to come.
For too long, we have been living in an unsustainable way and the damaging ecological effects of this lifestyle and its impact on our natural surroundings are becoming increasingly apparent in the form of climate change on a global scale. Natural phenomena such as tornadoes occur more frequently while, at the same time, sea levels are rising as glaciers retreat and polar ice caps melt. Flooding on the one hand and drought on the other cost millions of lives each year and the frequency of natural disasters is on the increase, reaching unprecedented levels.Visit the dedicated Multi-Comfort website at www.multicomfort.co.uk
