Protect your investment by ensuring your building meets the Passive House Standard of performance.  

Upcoming: Certified Passive House Designer Course

Reassure your investors that their project will deliver results

In recent years, green-washing has become rampant. This means it is more important than ever to substantiate the claims you make. If your team has never delivered a Passive House project before, how do you know if your building meets the standard? It is important to investors that their investment is protected over the long-term – you need independently verified results to assure them their building will perform as expected from Day 1 and onwards.  

30-year track record of delivering on its promise

We can offer you and your investors peace of mind through the Passive House Building certification process. This is more than just a paper exercise. As past clients can attest, it is the signet of a rigorous quality assurance process that guarantees a building fully meets all of the requirements of the Passive House Building Standard.

"It was really important to use that we knew we got what we paid for. We're happy with the result."
Norman Weisman
