Oyster Reach, Whitstable

A prestigious development of five luxury apartments constructed to Passivhaus principles using the H+H Thin-Joint System. 

Masonry Frame Systems specified H+H Jumbo Bloks primarily because it is what was needed to meet the demands of this Passivhaus construction.  H+H Jumbo Bloks offer an advanced thermal performance which adheres to Passivhaus standards.

Oyster Reach has achieved A’s in both its Energy Performance Certificate and Environmental Impact Assessment for each of the five apartments, as well as an airtightness level of 0.93 m3/h.m2 and a U-value of 0.15W/m2K.

The Thin-Joint system was chosen in particular for it’s speed of construction, which allowed follow-on trades to start work sooner in a weatherproof environment, whilst retaining the flexibility of on-site construction.
