Your ACADEMY for healthy and sustainable construction

Passive House is currently the most sophisticated international Building Concept and is new to the Australian Building Industry. It is suitable for all habitable climate zones around the world. The European Union is moving towards the enforcement of Passive House Principles as part of the Building Code by 2020. Australia will follow the same path within the next 10 years. Smart Plus Academy is pioneering to be one of the first certified Passive House Trainers in Australia. We will provide courses and training on behalf of the Passive House Institute.
