Official Exam date set by the Passive House Institute.
Andrew Michler will lecture on the Passive House building system as a Global Phenomenon. Andrew is a Certified Passive House Consultant and designer. He developed the first certified International Passive House in Colorado, which is the state’s most energy efficient home and has been on the cover of international architecture magazines and covered extensively in design media. Developed in Germany but utilized around the world, Passive House refers to a rigorous, voluntary standard for energy efficiency for any type of building to significantly reduce its ecological footprint. The standard is also about improving a building’s comfort well beyond what is typical in even “green” design.
Andrew Michler gives an update on his completed certified Passive House in the Colorado Foothills with details on how it was desinged and built, lessons learned, and how it became the most energy efficient house in the Rockies (for now).
Understand what air tightness is, why it is important, and how to achieve it. Learn how to implement strategies to manage moisture in buildings while maximizing health & comfort of the occupant and minimizing liability to the builder. Understand the numbers and the economic factors. Get your hands on some materials and mockups during the practical exercises.

The primary focus of good design and construction needs be the comfort and health of people living in and occupying the buildings.
During our first Hard Hat Happy Hour, we will give a short presentation on the topics of thermal comfort, the absence of mold and condensation, and indoor air quality.
Examples from both new constructions and retrofits of existing buildings will be shown. We'll also briefly go over different performance standards available, such as Net Zero and Passive House.
Who may find this interesting? home owners, architects, designers, energy consultants, builders, real estate agents, town council representatives, manufacturers and suppliers of components (insulation, membranes, windows, mechanical ventilation), builders, college students of architecture and engineering.
