Education for Passive House, High-Performance Buildings and Nearly Zero Energy Buildings
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.
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.
