It is a performance standard with rigorous and verifiable thresholds which have been met by many building typologies in every climate. The standard is also based on a comfort and health criteria to provide a holistic experience for occupants. While being very strict, once mastered Passive House is surprisingly flexible, providing designers multiple compliance paths and immediate performance feedback, backed up by a fast growing and evolving supply market and professional community. In this presentation Enrico and Andrew will cover the Passive House standard with an emphasis on commercial buildings, citing design considerations and examples.
