We are excited to announce Green Building United’s Passive House Community 2020 Demonstration Project: Habitat for Humanity Oxford Green!

Our mission this year is to collaborate with Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia to further their goal of providing healthy, affordable, high performance housing. Through this project, the Passive House Community will holistically explore ways to create Passive House certified designs using Habitat’s current project, Oxford Green, as a model.

We invite the community to help us implement our vision of making Passive House mainstream – from exploring cost and performance comparisons, analyzing material selections, examining design and construction trade-offs – all while having the opportunity for on-site volunteering experience!

We’ll kick things off with a “problem-seeking” session to review existing Habitat designs, identify issues related to Passive House certification, and discuss Habitat’s unique position in the building community.

Whether you're experienced in Passive House or not, the 2020 Demonstration project will provide hands-on education to guide your own projects and help spread the Passive House mission! Let’s think how we can better our design approach so that we can have a brighter, more sustainable community and future.

Light fare and beverages will be provided. Event is worth 2 AIA LUs and 2 PHIUS CPHC CEUs.
