Event description


Passive house enthusiast,

Please join us as we return to the largest passive house multi-family project in Canada, Spire Landing, which is underway in Vancouver. The construction team is now installing the windows as well as the drywall. Our second visit to the site will showcase the installation of the air barrier in the exterior walls. We’ll discuss what the Spire team has been challenging during the construction as they work to achieve an airtight building.

We will be covered during the tour, but please dress appropriately. If possible, wear steel toed boots, hard hat, and a high visible vest.

This event is hosted by Siga Cover, which develops and manufactures high-performance, nontoxic adhesives, tapes and membranes for creating airtight building envelopes. A Siga rep will provide a short presentation on their latest products.

Upcoming Events:

Wednesday, October 10th – PHPP User Group is meeting for their October session at HCMA Architecture + Design’s office. The event is held from 6:00 to 9:00pm. The topic of discussion is “Charting New Territory in Passive House: Clayton Community Centre”. This session is for certified passive house designers, consultants, and professional architects/engineers who are working on Passive House projects are welcome. Please contact if you have any questions or comments.

November 7 & 8 – Passive House Canada Conference is themed “Partnering for Transformation”. This conference is one of three integrated events. Passive House Canada has partnered with the Canadian Wood Council and the UN Economic Commission for Europe (which includes North America) in coordinating our three annual conferences in one time and place. Please check out the website as there are a lot of events being organized around this conference. Registration is open. Please contact with any questions or comments.

The ice box challenge started last summer in Vancouver and our structure has now visited Seattle, New York, Philadelphia, Washington DC, and the challenge is now occurring in Pittsburg. Check out for the latest challenge. You probably guessed that the passive house ice box is the five time champion! This project was originally funded by City of Vancouver, Passive House Canada, Vancity and many others. It is now being organized by NK Architects as well as NAPHN, and is now supported by Siga Cover, Rockwool, and Cascadia Windows.

For our December passive house social, we want to create an opportunity for you to showcase your passive house initiatives with a 10 minute presentation. The style of the presentation is similar to a Pecka Kurcha. If you are interested in presenting, please let me know. This event will be a great way to review our hard work in developing more high performance buildings in 2018.

Wishing you success
