Passive House (Planning), Action, Results
Brian Wakelin, Public Architecture + Communication, Shannon Dunn, UBCO Student Housing and Hospitality Services, & David Kiloh, UBC Student Housing and Hospitality Services  
UBC Okanagan is building Canada's first Passive House student residence (confirm). The 6900sm Skeena House will be the latest addition to UBC's living laboratory. It will be next door to two existing residences of comparable size, one built to 1992 building code standards, and another certified LEED Gold in 2012. This session will be the first of three sessions in which the client and design team describe the planning and design process. Subsequent presentations will be describe what was built followed by results compared with two baseline buildings.

The Road to Passive House Design: Mechanical Design Considerations, Code Implications and the District Energy Discussion
Kevin Shea P.Eng., CPHD, LEED Green Assoc., The AME Consulting Group, Matt Younger P.Eng., P.E., CPHD, LEED AP, The AME Consulting Group
Presented with the opportunity to complete two Passive House buildings simultaneously, design began on Skeena Residence - a student housing project located at UBC Okanagan campus in Kelowna, BC; and Corvette Landing - a multi-family housing project located in Esquimalt, BC. While developing these two complex projects in different municipalities brought many unique challenges, such as a heating only system high-rise compatible while meeting Passive House thermal comfort criteria, and district energy Passive House design in the Lower Mainland and Okanagan.
