Training

The world needs geeky builders.

Emu is a small business with a big heart and hopefully bigger impact. We believe strongly in the power of community. One thing you will hear from us over and over again is that Passive House level building science goals are much more achievable with an integrated team of professionals. There is power in shared resources and shared knowledge, and that extends naturally to the responsibilities we are facing as a community in the developments around the coronavirus.

Our accredited “hands-online” training offers flexibility and knowledge to help you implement your next project to Passive House standard.

Buildings certified to the Passive standard often easily exceed the efficiency, performance and indoor air quality requirements for other “sustainable” or “green” certification or building codes, and professionals armed with this knowledge often find that Passive building science guidelines inform decisions made in seeking those requirements. THAT is why we teach and build Passive.

We strongly believe that the Passive standard of building offers researched and proven guidelines for the most cost-effective application of construction practices that result in durable, resilient, healthy, and comfortable buildings.

In the spirit of removing the hurdles of complicated and advanced building envelope technology, we offer courses and workshops geared towards professionals in the architecture and construction industry.

Hear for yourself what previous students have to say about the effect of learning Passive on their own businesses:
