We are pleased to announce that Gabe Prost, one of our Senior Architects, is now a Certified Passive House Designer. Passive House (Passivhaus) is considered to be the most rigorous voluntary energy-based standard in the design and construction industry today. Passive House buildings consume up to 90% less heating and cooling energy than conventional buildings. With the growing interest surrounding climate change, increasingly we are getting requests from clients to design buildings with the environment and energy efficiency in mind. Certification in the program ensures that designers are expertly qualified to design buildings that meet the Passive House standards.
