THE PHPP (Passive House Planning Package) is a software tool used to help design and certify Passive Houses.  It has proven itself over many years as a reliable and accurate instrument for energy balance calculations and for the implementation of design changes in order to improve these energy balances on domestic and commercial buildings.

This 2-day workshop is tailored for architects and consultants who would like to get to know the Passive House Planning Package and for certified Passive House Designers, who would like to refresh their knowledge or get help with current projects. Steff Bell will do an introduction and welcome to the Scottish Passive House Centre, and the overall course will be presented by Ian Theobolt, who was instrumental for the design and certification of the first three Scottish Passive Houses, the first domestic Passive House in England and is also connected to about 80 further Passive House Projects world-wide.
