In May 2018, Love | Schack Architecture hosted a Certified Passive House Tradesperson (CPHT) training with Emu Systems to foster the high-performance building capacity of regional contractors. The CPHT Training is a Passive House Institute (PHI) certification that recognizes a building-science-based understanding of Passive House principles. Implementation of our high-performance architectural designs depends on working with knowledgeable builders who are also committed to changing building practices. We recognize our designs can only be as good as the builders who construct them. Our own team member and project architect, Lotus Grenier participated in the training. We are proud to announce that 100% of the students passed their test and are now accredited CPHTs!
