Certified Passive House Tradesperson (CPHT)
What is Passive House?
Passive House is an international construction standard maintained and continuously developed by the International Passive House Institute (PHI). Residential, commercial, industrial, and institutional buildings constructed to these guidelines are characterized by significantly increased comfort and health for the occupants, extremely low energy consumption, durable construction quality, and knowledgable project teams at the forefront of the construction industry.
What is the CPHT professional certification?
The CPHT certification allows members of the construction industry to engage and participate in the integrative and interdisciplinary approach necessary for better building. While much improvement can be made in the design and calculation phases of a project, the implementation of Passive House principles on site is absolutely fundamental to the success of a quality build.
