Business Portion of Meeting starting at 5pm, followed by a review of the 2013 North American Passive House Conference (October, Pittsburgh).  Between the trade floor exhibit, exciting recent projects (multi-family, high-design Passive Houses, and retrofits), and Building Science Corp's presentations, it was jam-packed with new and interesting info.

    Submit comments regarding IL's affordable housing QAP by Friday, please email [masked] Sample text: Under the Energy Efficient and Sustainability in Section XIV) Scoring, item 2 "Green Building" should add another green initiative standard, "Passive House Certification", as an alternative alongside the other standards awarded 3 points, such as USGBC LEED Certification, Enterprise Green Communities, and ICC-700 NGBS Certification. Passive House delivers third-party verified performance testing, just as these other programs require. However the energy performance and health levels needed to meet the Passive House standard are far more stringent (approx. 75% less energy consumption than built-to-code levels), resulting in buildings that cost very little for the occupants to live in over time.

    In other states, affordable housing developers have built and retrofitted to Passive House levels; Illinois should also be at the forefront of low-energy and healthy building.

    I just heard from Robert and Stephan Tanner of Peak Building Products (components for Passive House/high performance projects, exhibitors at the PH Conference), who are in town today. They will be joining us at our meeting and will bring info about their products. Stephan is an architect and is well known for his project, the first PH in the US, BioHaus Waldsee in Bemidji, MN.
