Questions about Passive House training? Speak to an Emu

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.
