2015 North American Passive House Network Conference


Following the success of last year’s conference in Portland, Maine, NAPHN15 promises a world-class program of Passive House speakers, exhibitors, workshops, panel discussions and, of course, social events! Hosted by CanPHI West at the Hyatt Regency hotel in Vancouver, the event program features case studies of exciting Passive House developments, from low rise to high rise, in hot and cold climates, from North America and around the world.

Workshops and presentations will be curated both for those new to Passive House, and for others who are already designing, building and looking to deepen their knowledge.

Post-conference tours in Vancouver and Whistler/Pemberton will showcase Passive House projects including a prefabrication plant and a public recreation facility. More details to come!


Integral Group Presentations:

Speaker: Dave Ramslie

Topic: Stretching to Passive House: Reconcile today’s codes with Passive House

Date: Thursday, October 1
Time: 2:45pm – 3:30pm

Passive House offers a clear set of performance targets yet the gap with current energy codes, including stretch codes can prove disorienting.  Examine ASHRAE 90.1, MNECB in relation to Passive House and the latest research on harmonizing Passive House and the stretch code of British Columbia.  Learn how we can reconcile the targets and make the leap.
