Delivered by HIP V. HYPE, the Davison Collaborative is a case study on sustainable density and a showcase for HIP V. HYPE's interdisciplinary approach. Working together from inception to build, our projects and sustainability teams, in partnership with Archier architects, converted one post-war suburban house into three fossil fuel free, 100% electric town houses.

Our performance based analysis created a sustainable design, systems and servicing approach that ensures these homes are a pleasure to live in.

This project tested a Structurally Insulated Panels (SIPs) construction system to confirm their efficiency both in speed of build and thermal performance in operation. High performing tilt and turn windows and doors further enhance the thermal envelope.

Installing solar panels, sonnen battery technology, electric heat pumps for hot water and hydronic heating, and an energy recovery ventilation system, this project tests innovative technologies for small scale residential.
