For Designers

Become a Champion of Sustainable Living with Passivhaus Expertise

As a conscientious professional, you’re likely already committed to incorporating sustainable practices into your designs and projects.

However, you might sometimes feel uncertain about the true impact of your efforts or struggle to quantify and communicate their benefits effectively. The Passivhaus methodology and tools give you certainty and are the perfect solution to address these challenges.

By mastering Passivhaus Design you’ll be able to confidently evaluate the effects of various design choices, such as the energy savings achieved through double glazing or the risks of overheating with different glazing qualities. You’ll also be able to discern the value of insulation placement, whether it’s under the slab or elsewhere.

Armed with this knowledge, you’ll become an empowered advocate for sustainable design, capable of making informed decisions and clearly communicate the benefits of your work.

Daniel Kress brings this amazing energy to class, seeing how passionate he is and his belief in Passivhaus has motivated me all the more! The passive house designer course is very well curated to the T, they have left no stone unturned and ensured they detailed every aspect keeping in mind that learners from various levels of experience undertake this course. As a sustainability graduate with very little industry experience, I found it rather easy to navigate through the course because of their systematic approach.

They provide you with all the required study materials and their 6-day online course delivered by Julia gives you a complete walkthrough of all concepts. Julia and the support team are very helpful whenever you need assistance in any way! It’s been an honour to undertake this course with SPA and I couldn’t recommend it more! To anyone looking to start their Passive house journey, THIS IS THE PLACE TO COME!
