Join NAPHN & Peel School of Passive House for the online course: Using PHPP in Passive House Design and Certification, participants will 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. Proper documentation will also be covered in detail. A case study will provide participants with practical experience in completing and documenting PHPP calculations for building certification.
Prerequisites: Knowledge of excel, familiarity with reading construction drawings, and a general understanding of low energy buildings is expected. Participants who lack one or more of these may find it difficult to keep up with the course material and exercises.
Course Requirements: Laptop with a take-off program (CAD, PDF etc), PHPPv9 software, and the PHPP manual. For drawings take-offs, either your own software can be used or you can download the free Autodesk Design Review from http://usa.autodesk.com/design-review/. Note that AutoDesk Design Review does not work on Macs. You can either use Windows for Mac, or download an alternative CAD mark-up program.
