AME Congratulates Associate Kevin Shea, P.Eng., CPHD, LEED Green Associate

Passive House (aka Passiv Haus) is a German-based energy performance standard aimed at designing buildings that are extremely thermally energy efficient and therefore require very little heating energy to maintain comfortable conditions. The Passive House concept is the only internationally recognized performance-based standard in construction, with buildings designed such that the vast majority of heating needs are met by the normal heat generated inside a building from people, lighting, and electrical devices, as well as passive solar heating from well-placed windows.
