Passive House Presents – 110: Introduction to Passive House High Performance Buildings – New Westminster

November 23, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

In August 2017 the Federal Government released Build Smart – Canada’s Building Strategy, providing a pathway for Canada to build drastically better buildings. This policy initiative aims to make high-performance energy-efficient buildings the norm by 2030. The international Passive House Standard is identified as one way to achieve that target. Becoming trained in Passive House design and construction, and/or becoming a certified Passive House professional will position professionals for future building expectations and help to lead the way in the building industry.

This full-day course provides an overview of the core principles of Passive House design and building energy efficiency regulations in Canada. It covers the history of energy efficient buildings, energy consumption data and environmental impact, case studies and the economics of creating high performance buildings. There are no prerequisites for this course and it is recommended for anyone wishing to understand the basics of Passive House high performance buildings, including: homeowners, developers, project coordinators, realtors, subcontractors and component suppliers, architects, engineers, architectural technologists and other design professionals.
