Passive First – Active Second – Renewables Last
The Passive House design movement has been the most effective design approach to reducing building energy use for over 25 years around the globe. Although Passive House design began in residential buildings, it is now widely used in many other building types including offices, hotels, libraries, museums, and schools. The passive building strategies developed by […]

High Performance Building projects often reference net zero-energy buildings. The metrics used to establish goals in performance-based contracting specifications affect how buildings are designed to achieve the goal.
In 2000, the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) introduced its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) green building rating system. LEED is arguably the most popular green rating system in the United States, and has been instrumental in the progression of sustainable thinking in the built environment.
CPHCÂ® certification attests to the ability to skilfully balance energy and design of envelope, mechanical and other systems to execute commercial buildings that meet the criteria of the Passive House Building Energy Standard for North American climate zones.
