Passive building, whether new construction or renovation, comprises a set of design principles used to attain a rigorous level of energy efficiency, while maximizing occupant comfort and emphasizing a healthy indoor environment. These buildings offer impressive long-term benefits in addition to energy efficiency; their airtight design and insulation provide exceptional comfort, even in extreme weather conditions. Continuous mechanical ventilation of fresh filtered air provides superb indoor air quality. A comprehensive systems approach to modeling, design, and construction produces extremely resilient buildings.
