Vancouver-area Passive House-certified tradespeople needed to build Ice Box Challenge structures

We are seeking Passive House-certified tradespeople, or those interested in learning more, to help construct two structures for this summer’s Ice Box Challenge in Vancouver. Our goal is to create a diverse team from companies who are already building passive houses within the Greater Vancouver area.

The City of Vancouver invited Passive House Canada to coordinate the Ice Box Challenge. Inspired by similar events in Europe, the challenge requires the design and construction of two small structures, to be placed in a public Vancouver space to create awareness and demonstrate the benefits of high-performance buildings.


International Passive House Conference 2017 – Our Highlights

This year over 40 Canadians attended the iPHA conference in Vienna, on April 27-30! The record crowd of Canucks included teams from large Passive House projects in Ontario and BC, manufacturers, suppliers, designers and builders. As usual, the conference program was packed with information, the latest research and product exhibits. The very fact the conference guide filled a 725-page book gives you an idea of the depth of the program!
