Building standards and codes are moving towards requiring buildings achieving high-performance standards. This four-day course covers the technical, economic and policy elements of Passive House buildings. Participants learn how to apply Passive House principles in the context of building physics, windows and mechanical systems. Numerous case studies, both domestic and international, demonstrate current best practices and teach concepts of cost assessment. Participants also have the opportunity to solidify their learning with interactive exercises throughout the course.
Recommended for architects and design professionals who are going to be involved in the design and construction of high-performance Passive House buildings or EnerPHit (retrofit) projects.
