A Post Occupancy Review of Vancouver's Largest Passive House Certified Building
Kevin Welsh, Integral Group, & Scott Kennedy,  Cornerstone Architecture
The Heights is one of Canada's largest Passive House certified projects, and one of the first to deliver Passive House in line with the City of Vancouver's rezoning policy objectives. This presentation will explore: the building's thermal comfort throughout the summer; overheating issues which often affect Passive House residential buildings; a critical analysis of occupant building usage; and the post-occupancy evaluation strategy of the building.

Multifamily Ventilation: 130 Units in Two Passive House Buildings in Vancouver BC: From Design, Installation, Commissioning.
Albert Rooks , Small Planet Supply
This session contrasts two different approaches to ventilating two 50+ unit Passive House buildings completed and occupied in Vancouver BC:  The Heights (85 units using semi distributed HRVs and risers), and Brixton Flats (56 units using primarily HRV's in every suite). The presentation considers the challenges and benefits of using individual HRV's (heat recovery ventilators) in each unit versus a semi-distributed approach of mid-sized HRV's over risers. The presentation will be made by 3 participants of the two projects. The session will end with IAQ data on the monitored and occupied units.
