Passivhaus on-demand training

Providing this level of in-depth training direct to my desk over lunch is a real boon. Whereas previously, I may have needed two days away, travel and accommodation, this has significantly increased my learning-to-downtime ratio. Even for experienced designers like me there was plenty of innovation to interest me and impressive case studies to inspire. PHT have really pulled off something excellent with this Masterclass series, just what I needed!
