Presenter: David Salamon, CPHD, CPHC, Re:Vision Architecture
This presentation focuses on helping passive house designers, builders, and developers avoid common mistakes on multifamily residences with lessons presented that will be relevant to all project types. Many people who take on Passive House are not aware of the nested certifications, which can add cost and cause problems if not accounted for early. Additionally, this presentation will illustrate where corners are often cut and seemingly innocuous decisions that can have a substantial ripple effect through the rest of the project. This presentation illuminates these common pitfalls and others in order to help the industry as a whole to realize successful passive house projects.
- Participants will learn about common places failure can occur in passive house design.
- Participants will understand the multiple nested certification systems that are nested within the PHIUS passive house standard and how to plan for them.
- Participants will learn about common mistakes made by builders during construction and how to anticipate and preempt them.
- Participants will gain knowledge of best practices to use during the construction of a passive house in order to increase the chances of a successful project.
