Passive House Tools workshops
Once you have some basic knowledge about Passive House buildings, learn about the PHPP, designPH, bim2PH and thermal bridges to optimise your projects!
Taking all the courses listed below will best prepare you to apply for the PHPP expert exam.
Energy balancing with PHPP
The Passive House Planning Package (PHPP) is the energy balancing tool for Passive House buildings and efficient retrofits worldwide.
Take a PHPP basics workshop to learn how to fill the PHPP and optimise the project design simply and reliably.
Enter more complex non-residential buildings in a PHPP advanced workshop. Evaluate efficiency options with the variant calculations and learn how to pre-certify step-by-step retrofits!
Quick analysis with designPH
The designPH plugin for the 3D modeling software SketchUp simplifies geometry input in the PHPP and speeds up design optimization.
BIM to PHPP export
bim2PH is an independent interface concept to export data from BIM models to the PHPP using the IFC format.
During a bim2PH workshop, learn how to enhance the BIM model with custom properties in order to complete the efficiency information required in the PHPP. Export in the IFC format and use the bim2PH converter to get a file that can be imported in the PHPP.
Thermal bridges calculation
Thermal bridges need to be assessed and calculated separately with 2D or 3D thermal bridges simulation software, before their values are entered in the PHPP.
Acquire in-depth knowledge on the subject of thermal bridges - indispensable for the energy-efficient planning of complex buildings. In a thermal bridges workshop you will also learn how to calculate these weak points, for instance using the free THERM program.
