Jarrod’s wife and business partner, Sara, hailing from Sweden, brought valuable insights from her connections in Sweden about Passive House principles. Along Jarrod’s professional journey, it became evident that traditional building practices in Australia needed to be challenged, urging the adoption of innovative techniques to enhance efficiency and indoor living environments. This realisation ignited Jarrod’s passion for fusing unparalleled quality with the creation of highperformance building envelopes to cultivate healthier indoor living environments.

The Passive House Robertson

In 2017, Jarrod completed his Passive House Tradesperson course. A few years later, he embarked on the construction of his own Passive House in Bowral, Southern Highlands. Jarrod and Sara recognised Passive House construction as the future of building in Australia and an essential component of quality construction. Jarrod has trained his own team of skilled tradesmen to adhere to the rigorous international Passive House Standard.

In 2022, Jarrod Olsen & Co achieved a noteworthy milestone by completing their first Certified Passive House in the Southern Highlands, designed and modelled by architect Andy Marlow and his accomplished team at Envirotecture. This bespoke masterpiece, aptly named “The Passive House,” graces the landscape of Robertson, representing a harmonious blend of sustainability and architectural excellence.
