Why Passivhaus

Greenbuilding comes in various shades.  We chose to design and build to Passivhaus standard because:

1. It places a strong emphasis on energy consumption during the useful life of the building

2. It is a performance based standard

3. Energy performance can be modeled accurately prior to construction

4. There is plenty of design flexibility

5. The approach may be scaled to different types and sizes of buildings

6. The approach is applicable to low-income housing as well as multi-million dollar homes and anything in between

7. It uses less energy because it needs less energy
