Living Libations Passive House Headquarters Makes Front Cover of SABMag for Fall 2019Fall 2019: Legalett is proud to have been featured as part of the Cover Story in the current issue of SABMagazine. This special Passive House issue headlines the Living Libations headquarters in Haliburton, ON, built with Legalett's GEO-Passive Super Insulated Slab and Foundation forms and Thermal Wall PH Super Insulated Wall Panels.
"Set on a south-facing slope amid the forested hills of Haliburton, Ontario, the design of the new Living Libations Headquarters reflects a corporate philosophy that places the highest value on nature, beauty and being. In building terms, this philosophy naturally led to the choice of a highly durable, low-energy form of construction, with a strong emphasis on indoor environmental quality and attractive common spaces that would have the minimum environmental impact over an extended life cycle. These criteria led in turn to the choice of a Passive House structure."
