The practice of ‘Passive House BB’ has been designing, building, and monitoring Passive House projects across California for more than a decade.
This presentation will provide a high-level review of that journey. It will touch on Passive House basics, then look at how this standard has been integrated into the processes and practices of this firm. A selection of single- and multi- family projects located across California will be used to illustrate specific targets, metrics and details, including early forays into embodied carbon analysis.
We’ll close with a brief discussion of ‘Standard of Care’, with a proposal for how architects can choose their own ‘standard of care’ to include outcomes well beyond the currently narrow legal definition of this term.
