What's this session about and who's the expert?

This session will delve deeper into Phius, a program committed to decarbonizing the built environment by making high-performance passive building the mainstream market standard. Phius trains and certifies professionals, maintains and updates the Phius climate-specific passive building standard, and certifies passive buildings, by way of third party field verification in a wide variety of building typologies. The Phius building certification process can be best applied by way of early and full integration of all the project’s stakeholders including those who build these comfortable, resilient, durable, healthy, and energy efficient buildings. This session will put forward best practices and methods to deliver these from the project documents onto the project site.
