Passive House Buildings:

Throughout 2019, NCBPA held monthly Passive House committee meetings to identify market issues and opportunities and take time to network with members also interested in this topic.  Towards the end of 2019, NCBPA signed a partnership agreement with PHIUS and committed to holding a track at our 2020 Conference with PHIUS.

For 2020, NCBPA will continue to look for ways to offer education and support to our market for those interested in, or that could benefit from, learning about Passive House buildings.
