“Opening the New York office reflects the growing interest in the passive house concept and it provides us with the wonderful opportunity to become an integral part of a growing passive house community in the US.” Said Tomas O’Leary co-founder of the Wicklow based Passive House Academy.
Driven by the impacts of new legislation for the built environment, increasing the energy performance of new and existing building stock is bringing about a fundamental rethink in the way we design, construct and operate buildings. Developed 20 years ago by the Passive House Institute, the passive house standard is today recognized globally as the leading benchmark for building energy performance and is fast becoming the preferred choice in providing high quality, high efficiency, dynamic and cost effective solutions for US home owners and businesses.
The Academy has a dedicated team of specialist trainers who have earned a strong reputation for delivering highly stimulating training and is also heavily involved world wide in the design, detailing and official Certification of Passive House projects, so their teaching is very much informed by on-the-ground practice and real experiences.
“The range of courses and materials we have developed and deliver are certified by the Passive House Institute and accredited by the American Institute of Architects (AIA). The training is rigorous and thorough; for example here in the US it takes into account regional climatic conditions, a key component in designing any building to the passive house standard.” Added O’Leary.
Next month the Academy will be delivering a series of training events at the University of Washington, Seattle starting on Monday 17 April please go to www.passivehouseacademy.com for further details.
“We have been active in the passive house arena for over a decade, we offer a unique and unrivaled range of services including global accreditation to deliver Passive House consultant training and a big step in this direction is the permanent US office as we continue the delivery of certified passive house training courses across the US.” Concluded O’Leary.
