A tailor-made platform for the sustainable building sector
Welcome to Marketplace+, our tailor-made platform for the sustainable building sector. Marketplace+ is a shop window for your business, a place designed to promote and connect you with the people you need to grow your business – from clients to specifiers, tradespeople, and even prospective partners.
In simple terms, it’s a directory, but it’s so much more: it’s an online ecosystem of the leading names in sustainable building, and it’s stitched into the fabric of the Passive House Plus website.
From simple free listings to features-packed pages that serve effectively as self-contained websites hosted within our site –— which has a large, growing, dedicated, audience –— Marketplace+ caters for your business, whatever its size.
And in a pioneering innovation, Marketplace+ is stitched seamlessly into the fabric of passivehouseplus.ie, offering you the chance to build your brand and sell your wares to a targeted, highly motivated, captive audience.
Here are the main features:
Your own home page, with a short URL

Social media integration
You can include your Twitter or Facebook feed in your listing, and link to LinkedIn, Youtube, Pinterest, Instagram and Google+ accounts.

Key in your office co-ordinates if you’d like your listing to include a Google map to help your clients reach you.
Got more to say? The custom tab gives you the freedom to add more – whether it’s a sustainability statement or any more detailed information about what makes your company special.
If your company has featured in an article in Passive House Plus or on passivehouseplus.ie, a side column with links to those articles will auto-populate on the side of your listing page – keeping your listing fresh with new content if you appear in more new articles.
Draw readers into your listing page via the ‘featured companies’ module – with company logo, name and short description – which will appear alongside any articles on our website that mention your company name.
Whether you want to promote a CPD seminar, conference or even your participation at a show, you can upload events to your listing – which will be added to our searchable calendar of events.
Show up in multi-factor searches. For instance, users can search for companies who sell external insulation systems, who serve the Irish market, and who have NSAI Agrément registered applicators.
