POSTPONED: Passive House Meeting 3/10


Due to rising concerns about the coronavirus/COVID-19 outbreak, we will be postponing this event until our next meeting date on April 14th.

While we discussed holding a remote session, we felt that this summit was best held in person and would rather delay the meeting then hold a less effective version of this event.

I hope everyone stays safe and healthy as we look forward to a productive discussion in April.


Though this presentation focuses on helping passive house designers, builders, and developers avoid common mistakes on multifamily residences, the lessons presented will be relevant for other project types as well. Many people who take on Passive House are not aware of the nested certifications, which can add cost and cause problems if not accounted for early. Additionally, this presentation will illustrate where corners are often cut and seemingly innocuous decisions that can have a substantial ripple effect through the rest of the project. This presentation illuminates these common pitfalls and others in order to help the industry as a whole to realize successful passive house projects.
