What our students are saying about our courses

"The training session provided by Andrew Peel to our group of technical specialists was well organized, thorough, and directly focused to our practice. Andrew exceeded our expectations and we look forward to working with him again in the future"


The Peel Passive House Consulting Ltd coaches were really helpful to increase my understanding of the Passivhaus concepts and variables. I look forward to apply this knowledge in my regular practice as an architect in the greater Montréal (Qc) region and continue to promote improved awareness of construction quality overall for greater durability and comfort.


"Andrew walked us through the various aspects of PH from start to finish in a very organized manner. His practical experienced gave us great insight into how the various PH principles can be implemented and the challenges that go along with them. No course is going to turn you into a PH specialist, but this sets you up nicely to get into the industry to become one!"


Peel School provided the right methodology and comprehensive approach to the field of Passive House standard and physics behind it. In addition, preparation for the exam was extensive and at a good pace, and I was very pleased that during the exam day none of the topics were left out. I would highly recommend the course, while highlighting very responsive and friendly staff assistance during studies.I look forward to future collaboration.
