Passivhaus Introduction and Workshop

Date: 7th March 2019 Time: All day
Location: BRE Academy, Watford Cost: £300 + VAT


This 1-day course and workshop is aimed at those with an interest in low-energy design, construction and the Passivhaus standard in general. It is a complete refresh of our previous introductory course and reflects the latest Passivhaus developments. Delegates are introduced to Passivhaus principles and the outline specification and certification criteria are highlighted.

The course also introduces the Passivhaus Planning Package (PHPP), the design and certification tool used to model the Passivhaus. In the afternoon there is a hands-on workshop where delegates use the PHPP to model the most important elements of a certified Passivhaus in PHPP*.

This is an introductory course and is aimed at those who have an interest in low energy design and construction. It is an ideal foundation for those who want to take the next step and attend the Certified European Passive House Designer (CEPH) course which is also offered by the BRE Academy and Strathclyde University.
