Passive House


At McGarry Constructions, we believe in improving the standard of home building in Australia. Our high-performance, energy-efficient homes offer comfort, cost savings, and a reduced environmental footprint, all while maintaining the highest standards of luxury and style. As part of our standard construction methodology we apply passive design and construction principles to craft custom homes that use minimal energy and premium materials for a healthy and conscious lifestyle.

What is a Passive House?

A passive house is more than just a building; it is a philosophy of construction that prioritises sustainability, energy efficiency, and superior indoor air quality. By leveraging advanced building techniques and materials, passive houses achieve an unparalleled level of thermal comfort with minimal energy consumption. Key features include:


Superior insulation ensures minimal heat loss in winter and keeps interiors cool in summer


Airtight building envelopes prevent drafts and reduce energy loss.


High-performance windows, often triple-glazed, optimise thermal performance and natural light.


Continuous fresh air supply with minimal heat loss, ensuring excellent indoor air quality.


Strategic orientation and design to maximise solar energy use.


We are dedicated to redefining the future of homebuilding through our commitment to passive house standards. Our mission is to create homes that are not only beautiful and comfortable but also remarkably energy efficient and environmentally friendly.


Why Choose a High-Performance Energy- Efficient Home?


Low Energy Homes

Homes are engineered to maximise energy efficiency, significantly reducing your utility bills. By incorporating advanced insulation, high-efficiency HVAC systems, and state-of-the-art windows and doors, we ensure your home maintains optimal temperature year-round with minimal energy consumption.

Superior Comfort and Indoor Air Quality

Experience consistent indoor temperatures and superior air quality with our innovative construction techniques. Our homes utilise advanced ventilation systems to reduce humidity and pollutants, creating a healthier living environment for you and your family.

Sustainable Living

We prioritise eco-friendly materials and sustainable building practices, significantly lowering the carbon footprint of your home. Our commitment to sustainable building standards ensures that your home is as kind to the planet as it is to you.

Increased Home Value

Energy-efficient homes are not only good for the environment but also for your investment. With growing awareness and demand for sustainable living, energy-efficient homes typically enjoy higher resale values and faster marketability.

Our Approach to Energy Efficiency

At McGarry Constructions, we integrate a holistic approach to building high-performance homes:

Advanced Building Envelope: We use superior insulation materials and techniques, including insulated concrete forms (ICFs) and structural insulated panels (SIPs), to create a tightly sealed building envelope that minimises heat loss and gain.

High-Efficiency Windows and Doors: It features double-glazed windows with low-emissivity (Low-E) coatings and insulated frames, enhancing thermal performance and reducing energy costs.

Renewable Energy Integration: Wherever possible, we incorporate renewable energy sources such as solar panels and geothermal heating systems, further reducing dependence on non-renewable energy and lowering utility bills.

 Smart Home Technology: These are equipped with cutting-edge smart home systems that allow for real-time monitoring and control of energy usage, optimising efficiency and convenience.
