Medium sized multi-family Passive House projects are quickly becoming a dominant archetype in Canada. There are aspects unique to multi-family Passive House projects that rely on advanced knowledge. This 1-day course will explore many of these aspects, including mixed-use buildings. A strong focus will be on how to model particular aspects in PHPP, including thermal bridging and service penetrations. Ventilation requirements and options will be explained in detail. Case studies will demonstrate how multi-family projects are being realized in Canada.
Topics covered will include:
- Ventilation requirements & options
- Mixed use buildings
- Building certification options
- Defining the thermal envelope
- Working with multiple PHPPs
- TFA calculation
- Additional ventilation worksheet
- Sanitary pipes
- Cladding penetrations
