This month’s Builders’ Breakfast Series is on Passive House.
By 2032, the BC Building Code will move towards the higher steps of the BC Energy Step Code, where Part 9 buildings are required to achieve Step Code 5 as a minimum requirement. The industry and municipalities are adapting to these changes by looking at different pathways to build better and one of the strategies to build high-performance homes is the Passive House standards.
This course provides an overview of the core principles of Passive House design and building energy efficiency regulations in Canada. It covers the history of energy efficient buildings, energy consumption data and environmental impact, case studies and the economics of creating high performance buildings.
Builders and designers interested in exploring this pathway can find out more information on their courses and certification on the Passive House Canada website.
