Passive House - World's Most Energy-Efficient Design Standard, CSI Meeting, 4/19, 5:15 PM, Boston, MA
Event Description

The presentation will provide an overview of the Passive House building standard and discuss the design and construction principles that are employed to radically reduce energy consumption. Applicable to nearly all building types, the Passive House discussion will highlight how this low-load building approach can be applied both to new construction as well as retrofit, and how scale impacts design and decision making.

We will review the evolving understanding and strategies that help produce super-efficient, cost-effective buildings that are affordable to operate, comfortable to be in, and resilient. Details, testing data and lessons learned will be shared with a special focus on the thermal envelope, continuous air barrier implementation and efficient ventilation systems.
