What is Passive House

 

The Passive House  Standard is arguably the world’s most rigorous quality assurance standard for energy efficient buildings.Developed in Germany in 1988 by Dr. Wolfgang Feist .Passivhaus is based on simple building physics

The key elements of passive house design are:

  • Building location and orientation on the site

  • Building layout

  • Window design

  • Super insulation

  • Airtightness

  • Ventilation

  • Shading

Each of these elements works with others to achieve comfortable temperatures and good indoor air quality.

Construction project management in Passive  House diverges from a typical PM role by demanding and incorporating extensive knowledge of Passive House principles 

 

Due to lack of experience and underestimated level of skills projects could run into a number of serious challenges: 

 

  • Costing significantly more money than anticipated

  • Running into delays and taken more time to complete than was anticipated

  • Failing to achieve the performance standards specified in the contract documents 

There are two major components in the implementation of PH procedure
