It Starts with Design
Michael Ingui, Baxt Ingui Architects

We really did learn (and then forgot) most of this in school. Passive House brings it all back and quickly. The essential lesson of shading – siting the house properly – considering how you will service the building – how a few key decisions make all of the difference in the world.
We are a design firm that has bends Passive House to fit our needs only to realize that if we started with the Passive House Consultants early (Pre-SD) that what we learned set our designs free.
No turning back – no do overs – cleaner – easier spaces – worked out and tested so we have the confidence to design better spaces with more ease. The first time!

Schematic Design : Setting up for Success
Lukas Armstrong, Cover Architectural Collaborative Inc.

Achieving PH certification requires consideration of PH strategies from the very start. However, the schematic design must be completed before the first PHPP file can be built. Often the initial PHPP model reveals significant design issues, leading to costly rework and client frustration. This seminar will walk through a number of critical conversations and decisions that can help avoid significant redesign at the end of schematic design. During the seminar we will go through an abridged schematic process for a typical single family home, and review the schematic design process for an existing part 9 and part 3 case study.
