This five-day course is being offered through BCIT and provides the knowledge and practical skills building contractors need to build to the world’s most efficient energy standard. This course focuses on building enclosure optimization, and provides a foundation in passive house principles, while stressing the importance of construction fundamentals and proper sequencing. Participants will learn building techniques that minimize thermal bridging, maximize airtightness, while using a variety of materials. An introduction to common passive house mechanical systems will be provided, including heat and energy recovery ventilators, heat pumps, and solar thermal. The course days take place in a lab/classroom and will include a blower door test.
