Event Description


Want more Passive House in your workflow? Let's slam! Go from 100 to Zero (basics to certification) in one session. Check out 3 project case studies and best practices across the Design / Build / Verification spectrum.

This session prepares attendees to set, achieve and certify passive houses from start to finish through strong team collaboration. Come away with an understanding of the Integration between Building Envelope + HVAC systems and how to rock the project timeline.

See photos of field installs, testing and field reports and feel the heart pounding rhythm of the mechanical room. Learn to plan for high efficiency HVAC equipment like heat pumps, ERVs, cooktop vent hoods, and make-up air, and even wood burning fireplaces! Attend for an illustrated tour of the beating heart of Passive House, and a lively Q+A.
