Building codes are evolving to create more stringent standards for energy efficiency. Passive techniques were used in building design for centuries to help moderate indoor temperatures before heating and cooling systems become prevalent. Now, passive techniques are making a resurgence because of their effectiveness in achieving ideal indoor environmental conditions. Join us to learn about passive techniques that meet energy codes, including thermal mass, proper day-lighting, and thermal bridging. Hear lessons learned from real-world projects that incorporate passive energy techniques.
