Detailing Your Passive House Envelope
Jeremy Clarke, Simple Life Homes
Jonathan Kearns, Kearns Mancini Architects Inc.
Ed Marion, Passive House Ontario
Terrell Wong, Stone's Throw Design & Passive Buildings Canada

Those who have designed and built to Passive House standard are well acquainted with the devil in the details. Passive House construction can be highly technical but there are also ways in which passive house construction techniques can be simplified and adopted into common practice. This session will feature a moderated conversation on the top considerations in detailing amongst peers working in the GTA, including a panelized builder, a PH consultant, and two architects. The panel members will discuss their approaches to successfully implement design detailing into construction and provide their insights for best practices on several common Passive House construction scenarios, with an opportunity for audience members to also bring their own high level detailing questions.
