Passive House Builder
First Lamp is happy to announce that Kevin, one of our founding partners, is now a Passive House Certified Builder. Did we just hear you ask, “What is passive house and why should I care?” Here is a snippet from thePHIUS (Passive House Institute US) website:
“Passive building cuts energy consumption by 60-80 percent compared to code buildings. Certified passive buildings provide superior comfort, indoor air quality, and resilience. PHIUS is a 501(c)3 organization that provides research, technical standards, training, certification and design tools.”
As a company who specializes in creating beautiful buildings that are also energy efficient, we are committed to understanding and implementing the best building science techniques and technologies. Passive House certification is a reflection of our dedication to building at the highest level of craftsmanship and building science, so that we can match our clients’ most enthusiastic commitments to building a home that is resilient, environmentally responsible, and beautiful.
PHIUS certifies individuals as builders, not whole companies, so expect more or our First Lamp team to achieve certification in the future. If you are interested in more information about designing and building a Passive House, we would love to continue the conversation with you. You can start by checking out the PHIUS website here, and reaching out to us at First Lamp – let’s begin this extraordinary process together!
