Building Science - Passivehouse

This short course (half day equivalent) is presented by wood engineer, building science expert and CanPHI director Tomaz Stich, and it outlines essential building science knowledge for super-insulated wall, floor and roof assemblies, no matter what the climate zone.

There are 4 learning videos, and you are also encouraged to go online and try to model building assembly examples using a powerful (free) hygrothermic software tool. The course includes many examples of what to avoid, and what can go wrong if you fail to take building science adequately into account
