Passive House Child Cares (Made Easy!)
Mary On, Integral Group, & Adam James, Ryder Architecture
Designed by Acton Ostry Architects, the City of Vancouver Child Care project provides two Passive House certified child care facilities atop two existing parkades in downtown Vancouver, both designed to LEED Gold certification with a 30% energy usage reduction and a net zero energy focus. This presentation will review the challenges and opportunities of designing and building two identical Passive House buildings several stories above a below-grade parking structure in a dense urban environment.

Scaling New Heights: Passive House at Scale 
Ciaran Garrick , Allies and Morrison 
The Passive House movement has gained considerable momentum in recent years, evolving from a niche standard adopted by passionate self-builders and emerging into mainstream focus on the agendas of large developers.

But with an ever increasing majority of Passive House certified buildings being single-family homes, have we reached the limit of its application? How can we test the limits of the Passive House standard to higher scale and density applications with more complex procurement methods?

Allies and Morrison set out to address many of these perceived limiting factors through a year long research study, examining implementation of the standard on an active project prototype - a 48 storey residential tower in London,UK.
