University of Victoria Student Housing and Dining Project: A Case Study in Large-scale Passive House Design

With a deep commitment to climate action and greenhouse gas mitigation, the University of Victoria has directed that its new 782-bed student housing and dining project be designed to the Passive House standard. Realizing this level of performance requires focus, creativity, and constant evaluation of performance measures. The Residence is among the few projects aiming to achieve Passive House certification with a fully equipped commercial kitchen. The project consists of two buildings including a 600-seat dining hall, a commercial kitchen (8,700 meals/day), meeting spaces and academic classrooms. The design adopts a wide range of measures to reduce the high-energy intensity embedded with the kitchen operation, including high-efficiency ventilation design, kitchen layout optimization and utilization of waste heat sources. Join Marine and Kaz in this conference session and gain practical guidance on how to incorporate energy-efficient measures into large buildings and how some challenges are not a barrier to delivering PH buildings.

Case Study: Leading by Example: Humber College Building Nx Retrofit

Rui Raposo, Humber College

Building Nx is undergoing a deep energy retrofit at Humber College’s North Campus. The retrofitted 1980’s building, a 5-storey office space for faculty, is registered for both Passive House EnerPHit and Net Zero Carbon Building – Design certifications. The scope of the project included a complete upgrade of the existing glass block and insulated metal panel system and replacement of existing mechanical and electrical systems for an ultrahigh-performance envelope and energy efficient BAS. Project representatives (architect, building envelope specialist, and owner) will discuss design, technical performance, and owner experience to provide a comprehensive understanding of the Passive House EnerPHit achievement.

Passive House Premium Erne Campus: Inspiring the Future of Education 
Barry McCarron, South West College

​​​​South West College (SWC) is delighted to present the development of our new college campus on the site of the old Erne Hospital located in Enniskillen, Northern Ireland. The building is currently in the construction stage and has progressed significantly since works began on site in April 2018. This new 7,025m2 (TFA) further education college campus building is specified to the Passive House Premium standard. The existing campus building (8,898m2) which uses 152 kWh/m2/year and used 100,000L of heating oil in 2017 at a cost of ~£55,000.00 pounds. This new building represents a 97% reduction in energy, which will equate to ~£52,000 per year in heating savings. This new campus building from South West College represents an excellent demonstration of a proactive approach to energy efficient building design against the backdrop of the imperative for zero energy buildings.
