Passive House Windows Workshop

September 16, 2015  By Ontario PH

Sept. 16, 2015 – When the first Passive House was built in Darmstadt, Germany, there was not a single window on the market that met the stringent Passive House performance requirements. Fast forward to today, and the situation is vastly different:  a robust European market with over 200 certified Passive House window products.

In Canada and the US, the Passive House market is heating up.  With countless low, mid and high rise projects in the works, the demand for Passive House quality windows is increasing exponentially.  Unfortunately, the scarcity of North American manufactured Passive House windows means projects are having to look overseas for these products.  But we can change that.

Join us for an exciting workshop that will provide you with a solid understanding how to design, build, and certify a window to Passive House to help you meet this growing demand.
As a further enticement, you’ll hear details of some large scale Passive House projects from the organizations that are developing them.  You’ll also hear about Humber College’s exciting NSERC academia-industry partnership research project that will support the PH product development and innovation.
Who Should Attend:
North American window manufacturers and designers interested in learning about the qualifications to meet the Passive House Window Certification criteria and how to design a profile to achieve certification.
