Submit a Project for PHIUS+ 2015 Certification:

Please register your project as early in the design process as possible to allow time for full design review and consultation during the design stage, and to accommodate on-site QA/QC protocols. 

Step 1 - Pre-Process Paperwork:


Step 2: Register & Pay

  • Register using links below (see Fee Structure details at right).
  • Payment may be made online (PayPal), or via mail by including the invoice you'll receive upon completing registration.


Step 3: Create a Project

  • Log into PHIUS+ Project Database using your CPHC log-in credentials.
  • If necessary, PHIUS will create account or give access to submit projects. PHIUS CPHCs will have already received their log-in details upon becoming certified. 
  • Create the new project entry. This project entry will not become publically visible until the project is pre-certified, so do not worry about entering project details at this time.
  • At this time, PHIUS will create a DropBox folder for the project, and invite the Submitter to the folder. The Submitter may invite other members of the project team. 
  • Upload project documentation into the appropriate sub-folders within the DropBox. 
  • When ready for a review, please inform PHIUS ( that all documents have been prepared and uploaded to the DropBox.
  • At this time the project will be added into the project review queue. 
  • Please remember a project review cannot begin without payment and an executed contract.

*NOTE: Certification under the old standard

  • PHIUS will accept registration and payment for PHIUS+ certification under the old standard until September 15, 2015. The contract and payment must be submitted by that date.
  • To register and certify under the old standard, please download this certification packet (instead of the PHIUS+ 2015 documentation).
  • For information on the required energy model under the old standard, download this Certification Guide (instead of the PHIUS+ 2015 Guide).
