The construction industry is a chaotic one. Sometimes just getting good information can be a struggle. Emu’s mission is to help alleviate some of the hurdles associated with inefficient processes and high costs for project teams aiming to build to Passive standards.

As the Passive movement continues to grow, so do the number of organizations and resources. Because building to such a high standard usually implies local climate considerations, we’ll try to consolidate some of the great Colorado resources available to our Rocky Mountain friends.

We’re new (2016) to Colorado, so please send us suggestions for additions to this list!


Passive organizations in Colorado:

  • PHRM – Passive House Rocky Mountains
    a chapter of NAPHN (North American Passive House Network), affiliated with iPHA  (the International Passive House Association)
