Passive House Design 101 at the Camden Public Library

Join Certified Passive House Consultant Erik Durbas at the Camden Public Library on Tuesday, February 18, at 6:30 pm for an informative "crash course” presentation about Passive House Design. He will review the six tenets of the German Passivhaus standard and explain how they far exceed the current building code standards for new residential construction and the renovation of existing homes. Topics to be covered include the thermal performance of materials and assemblies, creating an air tightness control layer, the impacts of thermal bridging commonly seen in to-code construction, high efficiency heating and cooling appliances, and the benefits of passive solar gain. 

This is a free talk intended to introduce the basics of designing or retrofitting a home to meet the Passive House standard. Erik Durbas says that he aims to help the community better understand "the best ways we can secure our energy future and create resilient buildings for the next generations to come.”

Erik Durbas has worked in the construction industry for over two decades. His hands-on skills range from cabinet making to custom building, with the last 12 years having been focused solely on architectural design. He currently practices sustainable, energy efficient residential design from his home office in Union.
