Learn about Passive House Construction with speaker Oliver Klein, CPHC, LEED AP, at 475 Building Supply. 

The name “475” is a reference to the heat demand requirement of the Passive House Standard, 4.75 kBtu/sf./yr.  Passive House is the gold standard for high performance envelope construction today. Learn about the strategies and materials used to achieve this extraordinary level of performance in today’s best performing buildings.
