The Passivhaus Bitesize course introduces the key principles of what makes a good low energy, comfortable building, based on the Passivhaus standard. It is delivered in a series of half-day online sessions.

 Brief Overview

Who are the Bitesize sessions for?
This course is aimed principally at building professionals in the UK: architects, builders, structural and services engineers, quantity surveyors and potential clients – all can learn how to deliver real low energy buildings. It introduces the principles behind the Passivhaus standard and for achieving low energy performance. Unlike the full Passivhaus Designer course and exam, these sessions do not require calculations, but show the principles behind the standard so that every member of the design team can understand what the Passivhaus Designer on the team is doing.

Putting Passivhaus into Practice (Crit. Session)
This session has been developed due to demand from participants for feedback on their own designs from experienced Passivhaus designers and certifiers. Modelled on the architectural “crit.” session, where designs are presented and discussions follow about the critical design decisions made, this format has turned out to be effective in engaging all of the design team. During this session, a number of schemes will be shown and discussions followed based on achieving Passivhaus certification. If you would like your design to be included, you will need to contact the trainers beforehand to arrange for your plans to be adapted for projection, as required.
