Temperance Street Passive House enjoys the merit of being the first building in Saskatchewan that was certified as a Passive House Plus by the PHI.

The three-storey duplex was designed and built in 2016 by Robin Adair of the green builder inc. for homeowners Jim Spinney and Holly-Ann Knott.

Attention to detail during construction was crucial in obtaining the outstanding final airtightness test result of 0.17 ACH50. A 6.8-kW PV system was installed on this all-electric building.
