BREThis 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 course qualifies as 1 day RIBA and Construction Certification CPD.
