More than ever, clients are inspired to minimise the environmental impact of their homes and as such the interest in Passive House is on the rise in Australia.
What is Passive House? Is it different to passive solar design? Is it difficult and costly to build? What does it mean to be certified Passive House or a certified designer? These are some common questions from clients and fellow architects.
Come and join us as some of the industry’s leading experts demystify Passive House. Learn how all buildings, new and existing, can be energy efficient, healthy, comfortable and resilient to our climate – whether you are in the tropics, or a cool temperate region.
Hear from Australian Passive House Association chairperson Kate Nason, about the need for Passive House to become the norm in our construction industry. Marcus Strang, one of only three certifiers of PH in Australia, will provide a summary of what is involved in the Passive House certification process. ArchiTeam member Marc Bernstein, of Melbourne Design studios, will share his experience of designing and building Passive Houses. He not only talks the talk, but walks the walk, having designed, built and now living in his very own Passive House in Melbourne!

This unit of competency encompasses the process of developing the design through research, detailed assessment of options and the integration of technical solutions, value and cost control processes to maintain or enhance the design intent. The final design proposal is cohesive, fully described and resolved to achieve value and cost objectives, and compliance with planning controls and construction codes.
Design Delivery and Construction Phase Services
This unit of competency encompasses the provision of services to support project delivery through construction. This may occur through a variety of building procurement methods and construction contracts. The form of construction contract may establish different expectations and obligations upon the architect and may include contract administration services. Typically, all contract types include the timely and cost-effective management of design delivery, review and inspection processes
