      CHICAGO EVENING SEMINAR: Targeting Passive House-Level Performance in New and Existing Buildings

      Targeting Passive House-Level Performance in New and Existing Buildings Presented by Cheryl M. Saldanha, P.E., CPHD Passive House continues to gain popularity as designers seek to improve performance, reduce carbon emissions, and optimize end-user comfort. The design concept uses solutions like stringent air tightness and minimized thermal bridging to create buildings that consume very little energy – allowing architects to program more usable areas and owners to market spaces that are more comfortable. Passive House building principles can enhance overall performance – whether for new or existing buildings, high-rise structures, or single-family homes – but require coordinated design, construction, and verification testing. In this presentation, we will explore Passive House design principles from architectural and engineering perspectives, discuss recent research efforts, and explore local case studies. After attending this seminar, participants will be able to: Identify the core principles of Passive House design. Understand how Passive House buildings differ from traditional design in energy performance and end-user comfort. Discuss how architects and engineers approach Passive House design projects. Recognize exterior enclosure strategies that can help a building achieve the Passive House standard. Participants will earn 1.5 AIA/CES Learning Units (LU/HSW) for their attendance. Attendance is free and open to all; please invite colleagues. We will serve refreshments. EVENING SEMINAR DETAILS LOCATION The Conference Center at One North Wacker1 N.
