Passive House continues to gain popularity as designers seek to improve performance, reduce carbon emissions, and optimize end-user comfort. The design concept uses solutions like stringent air tightness and minimized thermal bridging to create buildings that consume very little energy – allowing architects to program more usable areas and owners to market spaces that are more comfortable. Passive House design can enhance overall performance for a range of building types, from high-rise structures to single-family homes, but requires coordinated design, construction, and verification testing. In this webinar, we will introduce the Passive House certification process, explore Passive House design principles, and discuss how to overcome some of the obstacles to adopting this approach on future projects. 

After attending this webinar, participants will be able to: 

Identify the core principles of Passive House design. 

Understand the overall Passive House design and construction process.

Understand required field testing and inspections. 

Recognize how to respond to project stakeholders’ concerns with Passive House approaches.
