Physics of passive house design

December 24, 2014 @ 9:00 am - December 25, 2014 @ 5:00 pm


Topic of the workshop

It is essential for building designers, assessors as well as end-users to always bear in mind that fundamental understanding of physics to deliver better buildings. Workshop will provide a working level understanding of the Passive house standards; its embodiment of basic building physics and their application; key issues for clients, designers and contractors.

The Passive House concept was introduced in 1988 by German physicist Wolfgang Feist and Swedish professor Bo Adamson. Feist founded the Passive House Institute in Germany in 1996. Worldwide, there are about 15,000 buildings certified to the Passive House standard. The application of Building Physics to the built environment plays a vital role in striving to improve building performance and close the gap between design and reality. Current regulations require designers, contractors, and builders to deliver energy efficient, low impact buildings that provide healthy and comfortable environments in which to work and live.

Who should attend

Early career researchers, housing associations, developers, architects, architectural technicians, quantity surveyors, contractors and subcontractors.

How much will it cost

Two days workshop will cost £50.00 (Inc. VAT) for delegates from Academia and £70.00 (Inc. VAT) for delegates from Industry. However, no one will be refrained from registration only because of ability to pay the fee.

Time and Venue:

24 and 25 December, 2014. Department of Energy, MANIT Bhopal, India


Limited accommodations are available on first come first serve, on payment basis as per institute rules.

Learning outcomes

The course will provide a comprehensive insight into the complex relationships and interactions in the field of building physics at introductory level. The course is designed to give participants understand various passive measures required in the design of Passive House. Some of the learning outcomes from the workshop:

  • Key design features of Passivhaus
  • Understanding of building physics for design of Passive House
  • Reflections of strategies for energy and carbon reduction from built environment
  • Get familiarised with different tools and techniques for design of Passive House
  • Cost implications on Passive House design
  • Case study and exercises
