FBM Talent Receives Passive House Certification

Two of our colleagues have recently been designated as "Passive House Certified" after completing courses through Passive House Canada.

 Sheena Moore, Architect, and Jeff DeCoste, Architectural Technologist, spent time in Toronto this past spring to take the program, which now grants them the ability to design and consult on Passive House projects.

The Passive House program is a, "rigorous, voluntary standard for energy efficiency in a building, reducing its ecological footprint. It results in ultra-low energy buildings that require little energy for space heating or cooling." 

“This certification provides us with the tools and knowledge to quantitatively assess the loss of energy through the building envelope as a whole, and at a detailed level," says DeCoste. "It's a value-add for FBM's service offerings –  these techniques can be used to benefit all design in our office, as well as the design of Passive House buildings.”
