SU05 - Passive House (USGBCLA5)

Sunday, June 25 from 10:45 AM to 11:45 AM

This one-of-a-kind session describes the journey of the residential Perlita Passive House in Southern California and how the house is on track to receive both Passive House and LBC Petal Certifications. The session will describe the tenants of Passive House and how the home demonstrates the epitome of “conserve first”, with low energy consumption goals, while allowing the building designer to create within performance criteria. Background on the Living Building Challenge and how the house is targeting Petal Certification, via Net Zero Energy, will be discussed as well as the synergy between the design and green building certifications. Finally, the correlation with LEED for Homes will be presented to understand how a low energy house fares against international certification programs. Understand the principles of these rating systems, the certification highlights, hands-on lessons learned, and how a 2,400 square foot house is an iconic and exemplary local project. Upon completion, you will be able to: 1. Examine the Passive House standard for residential design. 2. Discussing the importance and key points for the building envelope. 3. Examine indoor air quality in residential projects and how to ensure optimal conditions. 4. Determine the beneficial relationship between Net Zero Building via Passive House.
