Register

This session will prepare staff for in-field conditions and the level of detail necessary to construct Passive House buildings. During the construction of a high-performance project it is critical that the design intent is accurately implemented to achieve the desired efficiency and durability. The application of building envelope air barrier, insulation, and windows will be demonstrated through a series of mock-ups. The trainer will demonstrate both good and bad installations and show how to identify and diagnose problem locations. Come prepared with scenarios in mind to share from your projects as well.

Objectives:

  • Application of air barrier materials at rough openings and field of wall
  • Installation of windows and different air sealing strategies
  • Approach to sealing penetrations through the building envelope
  • Performance testing, results, and strategies to improve assembly performance

Factoring in Electrification: Designs for a Renewable Energy Grid

REGISTER HERE Electrification is the buzzword du jour for decarbonization, and it’s pushing policymakers to rethink how they structure everything, from local codes, to energy models, to how they incentive programs focused on high performance buildings. Passive House has always provided a more careful accounting of ‘source energy,’ looking closely at which fuels power which […]
