Following next year’s international Passive House Conference in Vienna, Austria (April 2017), CanPHI will offer another unique tour of Passive House-quality European manufacturing industry, including visits to cutting-edge CLT, wood fibre and window manufacturing facilities. Prepare to have your worldview changed – previous Canadian architects and builders have been amazed by the high quality on display in these factories. All of the products we’ll see are now available affordably in Canada and the US via import.

We’ll tour facilities from Vienna to Graz, and then on to manufacturers in Slovenia. Every evening we’ll head for a biergarten for the chance to sample a wide range of local beers and regional cuisine – we’re here to learn, network and to enjoy ourselves.

Places are limited so please contact Tomaz Stich for more details.
