designPH Masterclass (240)




Workshops Toronto, ON, Canada June 21, 2018 - June 22, 2018

designPH was developed to simplify the design process for achieving the Passive House standard. The designPH plug-in for SketchUp provides a 3D modelling interface that works together with the Passive House Planning Package (PHPP). Users can create a building model, assign building components, and select a location. A simplified annual energy calculation provides a quick test of the design. Once a compliant design is achieved, key building characteristics can be exported for integration into PHPP.
In this two-day masterclass , participants learn how to use designPH for the design and certification of Passive House buildings. Participants are guided through the building design process, from building model creation to exporting to PHPP. Emphasis is placed on iterative design to achieve Passive House criteria. A case study provides participants with practical experience in completing and documenting a designPH model for building certification.
