Your Partner in Passive

Emu helps construction industry professionals navigate the journey from research to reality by providing a supportive community with access to training, services, and standardized systems.

Empowering the construction industry to build for the future.

Emu is a small business with a big heart and hopefully bigger impact. We believe strongly in the power of community, education, and collaboration. You will find that advanced building science is its own language, and that the most impactful thing you can do is to grow your ecosystem of trusted team members. Emu is fluent in Passive House, and we want to help grow that network.

Hands-Online Training

Online and In-Person training for busy design/build & construction professionals who are concerned about moisture control, air sealing, thermal bridging, healthy indoor air, durability, resiliency, and affordability of high-performance.

Product/Project Services

With the Passive House standard as our benchmark, we can model and simulate performance of anything from commercial or residential projects to specific components or products, and recommend cost-effective development steps.

Passive Systems

We believe that the future of the construction industry lies in the standardization and simplification of advanced building science through virtual prototyping and dynamic simulation. We analyze and certify construction systems, windows, pre-fab panels, and more.

The world needs geeky builders.

Passive House is the gold standard for advanced building science education. Connect that research to reality,  and build for the future.

To close the gap between mainstream construction practices and advanced, proven building science, and to empower our industry to build for the future and for resiliency through builder training and simple, standard, Passive systems.

A big thank you from Emu and our CPHT students to:

Our advanced builder training courses and workshops would not be possible without the support and product donation of several Product Partners from the Passive House materials industry. A big thank you to the following companies for donating materials to our workshops so that builder students can explore their options in an education-based, brand neutral environment.
