PHIUS Propose New Passive House Standard for the US

Passive House Academy has been working in the field of Passive House for over a decade, operating globally in such varied climates as US, China, Australia, New Zealand and Europe. It is the leading international Passive House building certifier in the US and is currently working on over 60 Passive House projects across the country. Our experience is founded on commercial, single-family, multi-family and institutional project types, including the tallest Passive House building on the planet. Based on our expertise we recently completed an extensive review of thermal bridges for the US Army Corp of Engineers in collaboration with the Building Science Corporation.  The Academy is also a leading educator in Passive House for both designers and contractors, establishing the first Certified Passive House Tradesperson training facilities in the US, Ireland, UK and Australia.

So, we read the PHIUS proposal to create a new building efficiency standard out of its experiences with the Passive House Standard with great interest. Here are some initial thoughts on it.

Highly recommend this free nZEB event at UCD next week. Less than 12 months ‘til nZEB becomes mandatory. Don’t be an ostrich.
