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.

PHPP course

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.

designPH course

Enter the thermal en­vel­ope and shad­ing ele­ments of a pro­ject in 3D dur­ing a design­PH work­shop. Dis­cov­er how to get a pre­lim­in­ary en­ergy bal­ance and op­tim­ise the build­ing be­fore ex­port­ing its geo­metry and com­pon­ents to the PHPP.

BIM to PHPP ex­port


bim2PH is an in­de­pend­ent in­ter­face concept to ex­port data from BIM mod­els to the PHPP us­ing the IFC format.

bim2PH

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.

Thermal bridges Passive House

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.
