Description

PASSIVE HOUSE

Our final seminar for 2018 will deal with Passive House. Passive house (German: Passivhaus) is a rigorous, voluntary standard for energy efficiency in buildings, which reduces the buildings' ecological footprint. It results in ultra-low energy buildings that require little energy for space heating or cooling. In discussing Passive House with building industry professionals, you may get a variety of responses, with some viewing it as an unnecessarily strict demand that takes efficiency too far, others viewing it as an unnecessary remedy for a problem we don’t have, yet some view it as the panacea for all our building woes. In this presentation, we hope to present an unbiased understanding of what Passive House offers, including case studies.

Speaking at the seminar will be BDAV Member, Luke Middleton, from EME Design, who is very passionate about all things sustainable, including Passive House. His 'Passive Butterfly' project, which uses a passive design approach to ensure vastly improved comfort and super-efficient thermal performance, was recently named 'Best of the Best' in this year's Sustainability Awards organised by Architecture and Design.

Also speaking at the seminar will be Clare Parry, one of Australia's first - and highly regarded - specialists in passive house.

ABOUT OUR PRESENTERS:

Luke Middleton has more than 18 years' design experience. He runs EME Design, a multi-award-winning design firm that embodies the integrity of intelligent, efficient design. They create beautiful, sustainable buildings inspired by a process of dialogue and exchange. Many of their projects embrace Passive House principles, including Luke's own home, and many are exemplars of super-efficient passive houses.

Clare Parry is a sustainability consultant and mechanical engineer. She is principal of Grun Consulting, a sustainability consulting firm specialising in Passive House, sustainability planning and regenerative design. Clare is a founding director of the Australian Passive House Association, which she founded in 2011, of which she was a director until late 2017. She is one of the first Certified Passivhaus Designers in Australia, and one of only two Passivhaus Certifiers, as well as being a certified Passivhaus trainer.
