Webinar: Integrating Passive House Concepts into Everyday Enclosure Design

Needs a location


To some design and construction professionals, the term ‘passive house’ carries connotations of added expense, difficult details and super-thick walls and roofs. However, for larger scale multi-family and commercial buildings, the concepts of passive house design can be easily implemented with a proper understanding of the core principles and guiding design techniques. Passive house can provide deep operational energy reductions through its core principles of entire building air tightness, minimal thermal bridging, and a balanced and appropriately-sized mechanical ventilation system. This webinar will draw on these guiding principles to illustrate how passive house concepts can be integrated into a number of wood-frame project types—including mid-rise multi-family, low-rise commercial, and tall wood buildings. Enclosure detailing techniques, construction cost impacts, and energy savings potential will be illustrated with an emphasis on repeatable and scalable strategies.
