How to Assess Passive House Projects in a Changing Climate
Monte Paulsen, RDH Building Science
Passive House buildings are finely tuned for the climate zone in which they are constructed. But how will these buildings perform when the climate changes? This presentation will introduce the study of future climate scenarios, will introduce sources of data for predictive future climate files, will review a procedure for creating predictive PHPP climate files, and will present an example of how the performance of a specific Passive House project may vary according to future climate scenarios.

The Design, Construction, and Post-occupancy Performance of a Passive House in the West Coastal Climate
Guido Wimmers, UNBC
This presentation will cover the design, construction, and post-occupancy performance of a single-family house built to the Passivhaus standard in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia. The design/construction challenges faced by the team and the solutions provided will be elaborated by the project architect. Sensors were installed during the construction to measure the hygrothermal performance of south- and north-facing exterior walls and indoor environmental conditions. The monitoring over a period of five years shows overall good durability performance of the double-stud walls used. Utility data is analysed to compare the actual space heating energy consumption with the design targets.
