Event Details
Passive House on the Rise. Thursday 12 October 11.30 am- 1.30 pm

Aesthetics, technicalities, collaboration and fundamentals of Passive House design.

Our speakers will explain the essentials of Passive House and how aesthetics are integrated into the design. They will discuss a range of typologies and dissect the design processes and challenges resulting from each of the building types. The focus will be on educational, high rise and commercial projects, with some references to residential.

Finally they will address the technicalities that come with Passive House design and outline what a successful project looks like - acknowledging that teams and arrangements are complex and it is better to know what you want and engage early with experts.
