Passive House in house
In December 2013, Project Manager Andrew Webster attended the Passive House Consultants training at Yestermorrow Design/Build school in Warren, VT.
Passive House is one of the highest building performance standards in the industry, and this training included curriculum in building science, the Passive House US standard, and training in both Therm and WUFI Passive (software packages designed for thermal and moisture analysis in building assemblies). Though these programs are unlikely to become tools in daily usage at C&H, the analysis they provide will inform and refine our understanding of buildings, their moisture, and their energy.
C&H Architects is delighted to count the tools of Passive House amongst our toolbox – and to have our own Certified Passive House Consultant in house.
