Event Details

The Designer course involves theory and calculations and applying all things architecture. It is for those wishing to model, design, and dive into the calculation of Passivhaus projects, such as:

  • Architects
  • Developers
  • Owner-builders
  • Building design enthusiasts
  • Other built environment professionals

In this course, you will learn to design energy-efficient and cost-optimal buildings by implementing the Passivhaus principles in your projects and writing the Certified Passivhaus Designer/Consultant exam.

You'll also gain access to the Online PHPP Software course where you'll learn how to use the PHPP for residential building design and certification. Participants will be guided step-by-step through the relevant worksheets while learning the correct conventions for measurements and calculations, preparing them for real-world applications.
