Our new 101 Edition of PHA LIVE! explores the fundamentals of Passive House and the application of basic principles, as taught by expert designers and tradespeople. Passive House Accelerator Founder, Michael Ingui, (Baxt Ingui Architects) kicks of the new series with 10 Steps to Designing Your First Passive House: Tips and Tricks From an Architect.
There are many factors to consider when designing a Passive House, and the specific steps involved can vary depending on the project and the design team's approach. Michael will discuss ten general steps to consider when designing your first Passive House project. He will cover the basic Passive House design principles—continuous insulation, thermal bridge-free design, airtight construction, high performance windows and doors, and filtered fresh air with heat recovery—as well as other helpful tips such as how to select materials and systems, conduct energy analysis and modeling, and how to select an experienced contractor.
The presentation will take place on Wednesday, February 1st at 9am PT / 12pm ET and will be followed by a lively Q+A session
