PHPP Overdrive: A workshop for Passive House Consultants
Friday, November 22, 2013 at 10:00 AM - Saturday, November 23, 2013 at 6:30 PM (EST)
Passive House California (PHCA) and New York Passive House (NYPH) are pleased to collaborate with the Passive House Institute and the Passive House Academy to advance the Passive House Standard in North America. To this end, we are hosting a specialized workshop for advanced Passive House practitioners: one in New York, California and a third in the Pacific Northwest. The same workshop will be simulcast from the Bronx, NY, location to the the AEA facility in Emeryville, California, and to two locations in Washington State: Bellingham and Olympia.
PHPP Overdrive: Next Level PHPP for Passive House Consultants and Designers
This 2-day course includes:
- Latest research and upcoming PHPP developments
- Climate issues: cooling and dehumidification
- PHPP for non-residential and commercial buildings
- Optimizing your PHPP – tools and tricks
- Case studies across North America and beyond
This class will be offered in four locations to allow wider participation and utilize the interactive broadcasting capacity at all facilities. Primary trainers will be located in the Bronx, NY facility. We have adjusted our prices to reflect this advantage for those able to participate at the Bronx location.
Qualification Requirements: participants must have already taken and passed a Passive House Consultant or Designer training or be actively using the PHPP, have worked on projects with the PHPP and already have an advanced understanding of the Passive House concept. This class is not for beginners.
NOTE: This class will be taught using the new PHPPv.8, with primary units in metric and an IP conversion tool. Students of this class are being offered a reduced rate to upgrade their older registered PHPP license. (Email your registration confirmation to each reseller to receive the discounted rate.) Upgrades can be purchased at one of the three licensed resellers in North America: 475 High Performance Building Suppply, Small Planet Workshop, and CanPHI (in Canadian $). A limited number of copies will be available for 'day-of-event' purchase in the Olympia and Bronx locations.
