Affordable Multi-Residential Passive Buildings - Learning from Experience

  • Describe the five principles of Passive House design
  • Discuss the cost implications of high-performance Passive House design on project cost
  • Analyze a building envelope on a construction site for effectiveness from a Passive House perspective
