FREE WEBINAR: Passive House at the Jobsite - Cost, Inspections, and the Designer-Builder Relationship
Event Description

The design principles associated with passive house construction are well documented. Core aspects such as continuous air barriers, heat recovery/fresh air ventilation, and minimizing thermal barriers are being used in multi-family passive house projects to achieve extreme operational energy efficiency. However, proper construction practices are key to achieving expected performance. Presented by a Northeast-based contractor with extensive passive house experience, this webinar will examine the cost and construction of wood-frame, multi-family projects in particular. Topics will include cost differences between traditional and passive house construction, communication aspects that are critical to success, testing and inspections, design details that translate to buildable projects, and lessons learned from the jobsite.

Attendees will qualify for 1 AIA/CES HSW LU, 1 PDH credit1 or 0.1 ICC credit (FBPE board-approved).
