About this course
It’s one thing to understand a subject on an intellectual level. It’s another to put it to use in a practical way. This one-day training course aims to boost your practical exposure to Passive House, putting you in the best position possible to truly grasp the potential of this revolutionary approach.
A key focus of the course is on the use of membranes and tape in the airtightness and weathertightness systems. You will gain first-hand knowledge of the window installation process – a common weak spot when constructing the building envelope. Students will be exposed to all five Passive House building components/principles and be able to touch and feel available products.
Students will also look at a heat-recovery ventilation system and see a blower door in use. There will be time for questions and to discuss detail, both during and after the course. Course teachers will be experts from construction engineers AirBossDan and Daniel Kress, all of whom have extensive construction experience.
