Passive House Design for Multi-Family Buildings




Workshops Toronto, ON, Canada June 23, 2018

Building standards and codes in Canada are moving towards requiring buildings achieving high-performance standards, and medium-sized multi-family Passive House projects are quickly becoming a dominant archetype in Canada.

Emphasis is placed on how to model specific aspects in PHPP, including thermal bridging and service penetrations. Ventilation requirements and options are explained in detail.

This course is meant for intermediate and advanced PHPP users. It is recommended that participants have already taken courses 120A, 120B and 120C, offered by Passive House Canada (
