Builder's Notes

Passive Home Certified

I passed the Certified Passive House Builder's exam! This makes DeLarue Building Co. the first certified Passive House Builder in our region (upper Arkansas Valley)! The Passive House Building standard is one of the most rigorous building certification programs in the world. 

In addition to energy efficiency, passive buildings offer unmatched long-term benefits including: Unmatched Comfort, excellent indoor air quality, extremely resilient (durable) construction, and offers the best path to a net-zero and net-positive energy use because it minimizes the load that renewables are required to provide. This is what I enjoy most about building - the science and physics that go into our homes, their energy use, and their durability!
