Meredith Marsh invited to speak at Annual North American Passive House Conference in SFO

September 15, 2014

This week our own Meredith Marsh, M.Sc., LEED AP BD+C presents at the 9th annual North American Passive House Conference (NAPHC), to be held September 12-13th in San Francisco.

Meredith’s presentation, entitled “Pushing the Envelope: Leveraging Passive House in Commercial Construction” will examine the potential synergies between building enclosure commissioning (BECx) and the Passive House standard to deliver high-performance enclosures, from requirements to results. The session will focus on how building performance practitioners can adapt to the challenges of commercial construction by leveraging their skills with the coming demand for envelope commissioning under the new requirements of LEED v4 and supported by the standards from ASHRAE, NIBS, and ASTM. This emerging practice area supports the design and development of energy-efficient buildings that are durable, comfortable and inexpensive to operate.

Each year the PHIUS North American Passive House Conference brings together leading national and international passive builders, policy makers, energy consultants, architects, academics, energy media members and consumers for the largest passive building event on the continent.
