Extreme Energy Efficiency Construction: "We Could Have Gone Passive House"

Gain a solid understanding of energy-efficient construction and create affordable super-energy efficient structures.

The confluence of new energy-efficiency requirements in the building code and the international voluntary Passive House extreme energy standard plus the technology it has spawned provide an opportunity to create affordable super-energy efficient homes and multi-family structures. Paul Grahovac, a former construction defects trial lawyer now deeply involved in the high-performance segment of the construction industry as a product technical manager, lays out a concise, easily understandable, interesting, and some say entertaining explanation of the building science, building technology, and associated comparative costs of extreme energy-efficient construction. Gain a solid understanding of the basics of energy-efficient construction for single- and multi-family projects.
