PHASD Chapter Meeting


6:00-6:30  Dinner (most likely Pizza again) + Opportunity to connect and socialize (30mins)

6:30-6:40 Meeting starts.  Introductions & News from Rich Williams & Wayne Longdon. (10mins)

6:40-7:10 Rich & Dadla to present on "takeaways" from the PHIUS National Conference in Pittsburgh on Oct.17-19th (30mins)

7:10-8:20 TBD depending upon time considerations - Luke to continue his presentations on Site Considerations, AND/OR Rich & Luke to co-present on to-date findings during design development & modelling of the McQuillan Residence Passive House, AND/OR presentation of a new, just-released video on Passive House (This video was shown at the PHIUS National Conference. It provides more of an introductory overview of Passive House yet is still excellent even for those of us who already have an in-depth understanding of it.  Lots of great examples of actual PH projects!)

8:20-8:30  Requests for input on subsequent meeting formats and content. Meeting wrap-up and adjournment.  

UPDATE: We just received the Video we have been hoping to show, "PASSIVE HOUSE - A Building Revolution" (click on that link to learn more about the movie.) Our plan now is to show this great movie at the meeting.  This movie runs 45 minutes, so we will adapt the rest of the meeting content to fit with the screening.

    Great meeting. Thanks to the board for spending their time and effort to bring us the great knowledge and ideas regarding our greening building industry.

      Thanks Peg for both coming, it was great to have you. I have been speaking with PHAUS National about having Architect Trainings in future, not just Builder Trainings. Architects have been going through the CHPCC training (Certified Passive House Consultant) which is WAY more than most architects would want to take on. We could, conceivably, have such a training in San Diego. As a PHAUS Chapter, we get to do that!

    We're growing greener every day and it's a real pleasure to help plant some of those seeds of change.
    Thank you ALL for helping us enjoy what we're trying to do.

      Thanks so much for joining us last night, Sarah. We hope you found the evening a rewarding experience. I will get that contact for Rosalind to you by email. Texting it did not work again this morning. Probably the iPhone IOS vs. Android issue.
