RJC’s Parvin Asadi, Mohammad Fakoor, Duncan Rowe and Maddie Reid, recently obtained their Certified Passive House Designer designation, joining others at the firm to hold these principles and training. Our Certified Passive House Designers are across Canada, using their knowledge to help deliver better performing buildings.

Passive House is a ‘rigorous voluntary energy-based standard’ for design and construction. Buildings that meet this standard consume less heating and cooling energy than traditional structures. Certified Passive House Designers are qualified to design buildings to meet the Passive House standard, bringing with them specialized knowledge on how to execute new and retrofit projects.

“I am passionate about making our buildings better, greener, and healthier. I am a strong advocate and believer in an integrated design approach, where building energy analysis/simulation can play a vital role in meeting the sustainability goals of construction projects at an early stage” states Parvin Asadi, Building Performance Engineer. “The Passive House standard of building performance is recognized internationally as a way to reduce energy consumption and lower carbon emissions. Having this designation directly aligns with my values, skillsets and interests in smarter design.”
