Synthesis Design Uncategorized

At Synthesis Design we are dedicated to working towards the future. Passive Housing is the future. Brad and Pedro have just completed the 1st of 3 courses required to give us the knowledge and education to rethink how we design houses.

Houses not only for our clients, but also for the environment. Stay tuned for our first Passive House design. Coming soon!

A brief description of the course we took:

Passive House Design and Construction is a four-day course that covers the technical, economic and policy elements of Passive House buildings. Participants will learn how to apply Passive House principles in the context of building physics, windows and mechanical systems. Numerous case studies, both domestic and international, will be used to demonstrate current best practices and teach concepts of cost assessment.
