Introduction to the Passive House Standard

January 24, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

About the Class

Passive House goals and methodology change the way architects and builders think and work, making the architectural design itself a driver of climate, health, and social solutions. This is a 4-hour course that dives into the basic principles, history, certification, and the new frontiers of Passive House design as it continues to challenge and change industry expectations. All theory is then illustrated through several case studies outlining specific Passive House principles. This course is provided by The Passive House Network.

Participants will need to provide their own laptop with internet capabilities.

4 AIA/HSW Continuing Education Units are available for this training.
