Passive House is more than just a low-energy building. It is a building standard that provides healthy and comfortable living space whilst at the same time being energy efficient and sustainable. The good thing is that it can be quite affordable.

The concept is straight forward; by creating a highly efficient outer shell of a building, the energy consumption of that building will be drastically reduced during the time of use. Another positive effect is that, the lifetime of the structure will increase significantly. At the same time, the life quality for the occupants is getting enhanced. Passive House is a concept that can be applied by anyone and to any building project. It is a proven concept, formulated in a flexible and simple energy modelling tool called PHPP. Smart Plus Homes believes that the PHPP is a calculation that should be mandatory to all building projects that create a conditioned space; the same as engineering is required for every structure build.  

Home Owner

Building your own home is most likely the biggest one-off investment of your lifetime. It is your money that is getting spent and there is no one out there who has bigger interest in making your home healthy and comfortable. Smart Plus Homes believes that you need to know the basics to make an educated decision. We at Smart Plus Homes educate you to ask the right questions and evaluate the information/answers you are receiving from the building experts.


Continuing professional development is necessary in order to understand the fast evolving building industry. Healthy and comfortable buildings that are energy efficient and sustainable are becoming more and more standard. Smart Plus Homes offers presentations, courses and training for the building industry, which are extremely helpful with your CPD. You can book Smart Plus Homes – for your own function or attend to a public event.

Passive House

Passive House is currently the most sophisticated international Building Concept and is new to the Australian Building Industry. It is suitable for all habitable climate zones around the world. The European Union is moving towards the enforcement of Passive House Principles as part of the Building Code by 2020. Australia will follow the same path within the next 10 years. Smart Plus Homes is pioneering to be one of the first certified Passive House Trainers in Australia. We will provide courses and training on behalf of the Passive House Institute.


Presentations can be quite informative and educating. By explaining and simplifying a complex problem, a presentation can be a quick way of raising awareness and delivering knowledge. Smart Plus Homes can provide excellent presentations on a wide range of topics. You can book Smart Plus Homes for your Event and choose the subject or attend an organised function.


Courses are designed to target innovation and learning, deepening existing knowledge in the Building Industry. Smart Plus Homes courses are interactive and make complex topics easy to understand. We offer courses for the public and professionals and also develop internal programmes for your Organisation. All courses deliver clear defined learning outcomes and an optional examination for your CPD points.


Training is the practical part where the theory is put to practice. Usually training involves 30% to 50% theory with the remainder being at a hands on approach. These programmes are specially designed for trades people and owner builders that will be using the gained knowledge in the field. We will offer one on one training and prepare a customized internal training schedule for your team.
