designph_adJoin Passive House Institute (PHI), Passive House AcademyBLDGtyp, and 475 for a hands-on look at designPH modeling for big buildings

As Passive House grows in New York City, so do the scale of the projects. The introduction of designPH software has combined the power of the Passive House Planning Package (PHPP) and the design ease of SketchUp to allow designers new abilities in the development of Passive House projects. The Passive House movement is built on a scientific method of testing, discovery, and information-sharing that enriches the architectural body of knowledge for low-energy building. On August 2nd, 475 is hosting an event in that spirit, to share, identify, and clarify challenges with the use of designPH on large buildings.


The course will be a 3 hour, interactive event, which will include:

  • Presentation from Passive House Academy and BLDGtyp sharing experience with large projects
  • Remote connection with PHI designPH developers to clarify solutions
  • Time to share and resolve issues of participants

Preparing for the day:

Before the event, attendees should submit files demonstrating problems / issues with existing projects no later than 7/29. Send files to: support@foursevenfive.com. On the day of the event, bring a laptop loaded with a designPH project. The event is an advanced training, and will not cover basics of designPH. This will be a chance for professionals to work with leading experts to find solutions and push big buildings to new levels of energy performance.
