Charting New Territory in Passive House: Clayton Community Centre
Melissa Higgs & Zina Berrada, HCMA Architecture + Design
While the Passive House standard is experiencing spectacular growth, over 80% of certified buildings are residential. How can Passive House chart new territory and be applied to more sectors?

In this session, HCMA will share their experience working on the largest Community Centre in North America targeting Passive House certification: the 76000 sqf Clayton Community Centre located in the City of Surrey, BC. Through sharing their Passive House journey, the presenters will highlight the potential that an integrated design approach offers in overcoming wide-ranging challenges to achieve Passive House Certification in a community, library, recreation, and arts and culture centre.

Joe Quad & Thomas Bamber , Integral Group 
Clayton Community Centre in Surrey, BC is a 76,000 sq ft community-focused building combining recreation, arts, a library, and a gym in an integrated design that once completed, will be the largest community centre in North America targeting Passive House certification.
