Passive House: A pattern language

October 6 @ 9:00 am to 12:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 9:00 am on Wednesday, repeating until October 27, 2021

An online workshop offered by Passive House Canada.

Description

This interactive workshop teaches cost-effective planning and design of affordable, low-emission, mid-rise, multi-unit, wood-framed housing.

This four-part workshop presents design problems common to multi-unit buildings, followed by solutions that have worked in previous high-performance projects. These solutions are organized into “patterns” using a format adapted from A Pattern Language by Christopher Alexander (et al).

The patterns presented in this workshop are drawn from the hundreds of affordable multi-unit buildings constructed to the Passive House standard worldwide, because this is the largest cohort of affordable, low-emission, mid-rise, multi-unit housing. While these solutions are taken from Passive House buildings, they are applicable for residential building design to meet Step 4 of the BC Energy Step Code, as well as multi-unit buildings aiming for similar low-TEDI or not-zero energy standards. Likewise, while this workshop focuses on affordable housing, the patterns apply equally to market- and luxury-housing projects.

Workshop dates

Wednesdays: October 6, 13, 20 and 27  from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm (PDT)
