Congratulations to Project Architect Chad Stewart on attaining his accreditation as a Certified Passive House Consultant (CPHC) by the Passive House Institute US (Phius).
First developed in Germany, the Passive House standard aims for each building to use 90% less energy than conventionally equivalent buildings. The requirements for high thermal performance and envelope airtightness minimize space conditioning needs and reduce energy usage. Phius sets the standard for passive house design in North America.
Based out of our Troy office, Chad’s portfolio includes a range of new and renovated multi-family housing projects across New York State. As a CPHC, he will work with the project team and coordinate with PHIUS to ensure that the design meets the requirements for certification.
“The trend towards energy efficiency and carbon neutrality is long overdue and I hope to see it achieved in my lifetime.”
Chad received his Bachelor of Architecture from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and is a Queensbury, NY resident.
