These half-day sessions offer insight into all the main principles of the Passivhaus Standard and what makes a good low energy, comfortable building. 

The trainers are experts who are successfully designing and building Passivhaus in UK - among others, Bill Butcher, Alan Clarke, Sally Godber, Nick Grant, Eric Parks, Mark Siddall, and Passivhaus Certifiers Will South, Mike Roe and Peter Warm. Assisted by Passivhaus Designers Piers Sadler and Tom Dollard.

These sessions are being run in conjunction with AECB CarbonLite & The Green Register.


Who should attend?

This course is aimed principally at building professionals in the UK:  Architects, Builders, Structural and Services Engineers, Quantity surveyors and Potential Clients – all can learn how to deliver real low energy buildings. It introduces the principles behind the Passivhaus standard and for achieving low energy performance. Unlike the full Passivhaus Designer course and exam, these sessions do not require calculations, but show the principles behind the standard so that every member of the design team can understand what the Passivhaus Designer on the team is doing.


Putting Passivhaus into Practice (Crit. Session)

This session has been developed due to demand from participants for feedback on their own designs from experienced Passivhaus designers and certifiers. Modelled on the architectural “crit.” session, where designs are presented and discussions follow about the critical design decisions made, this format has turned out to be effective in engaging all of the design team. During this session, a number of schemes will be shown and discussions followed based on achieving Passivhaus certification. If you would like your design to be included, you will need to contact the trainers beforehand to arrange for your plans to be adapted for projection or printing, as required.
