The Building Energy Exchange (BE-Ex) will be hosting two sessions on their updated Passive House Primer in coming weeks. The primer is a free, one-hour seminar on Passive House fundamentals that avoids building science jargon to provide a non-technical introduction to Passive House and high-performance construction concepts. The program is ideal for property owners, developers, managers, and even policymakers, but may also be of interest to architects, engineers, and design professionals looking for a fun, conceptual overview of these topics.
The first session will take place Wednesday, July 22, from 1–2 (EST) and will be hosted by instructor Crystal Yue-Hin Ng of Curtis + Ginsberg Architects, LLP. The second session will run Wednesday, August 12, from 1–2 (EST) and be hosted by Todd Kimmel of ROCKWOOL.
Attendees are eligible for 1 AIA LU|HSW credit.
