It’s an exciting time at PHIUS! We’re seeing a rapid uptake of the PHIUS+ 2015 Passive Building standard, and growing participation in our professional and product certification programs as well. There’s been a terrific upsurge in project certifications across an increasingly broad array of locales and building typologies. More and more policymakers around the US (and beyond) are writing PHIUS+ 2015 into their programming. With all of this growth, we could use some help! As the leader in North American passive building development, PHIUS is creating and offering unrivalled opportunities in the field. We’re very pleased to be able to announce that the following positions are now available. Please be sure to share with your networks and spread the word!
PHIUS Quality Assurance Certification Reviewer
The PHIUS+ Certification process provides guidance, quality assurance, and risk management to project teams. PHIUS+ Certified buildings also provide the best path to Net Zero, and PHIUS+ buildings mitigate climate change through carbon reduction, and provide adaptation to climate change through resilience. Consequently, the demand for PHIUS+ certification is exploding, and PHIUS needs a qualified quality assurance professional to join our Chicago-based certification team.
