Associate Director Now Passivhaus Certified
HPA Associate Director, Andrew Walters, is now officially Passivhaus design certified, after passing the Passivhaus examinations.
Passivhaus prioritises low energy design to the highest quality standards. Examples of Passivhaus can be buildings and structures that provide excellent thermal comfort, low energy demands, high levels of insulation, and low energy costs.
After weeks of online training and preparation, Andrew took the Passivhaus exam back in July – with a six week wait to find out results. Andrew is now Passivhaus certified, meaning he is able to utilise this specialist knowledge and expertise into designing unique and sustainable projects moving forwards in our practice.
After completing the Passivhaus designer training course, Andrew is able to fully understand the principles and requirements of Passivhaus architecture and design. This qualification will be renewed every subsequent five years.
