Phius Certified Consultant Training is geared toward architects, engineers, and sustainable design professionals who would like to take their expertise to the next level.
Building Energy Modeling and Passive Building Physics
Understanding passive building physics and the driving factors for losses and gains in a building are essential to climate-appropriate passive building design.
High-Performance Building Enclosure Design
From moisture control strategies to thermal-bridge-free design strategies, passive building places emphasis on getting the enclosure right.
High-Performance Mechanical Systems
Balanced ventilation and high-performance heating, cooling, and domestic hot water systems are critical elements of passive building design.
Building Science Fundamentals
Phius professionals learn how controlling moisture, heat, and airflow in buildings define best practices in building design for comfort, efficiency, durability, and air quality.
An airtight enclosure is cornerstone to passive design and with applied building science leads to a long-lasting, durable enclosure, comfort, and minimized losses from a leaky building
Cost Optimized, Climate-Specific Design
CPHCs take a deep dive into the Phius standards and passive building methodology to understand how to achieve climate-specific optimized designs.
Assure Quality from Design through Construction
The Phius Certified Consultant on a project is responsible for understanding all of the certification requirements and oversight that the project is on the right path throughout design and construction.
Phius Certified Consultants Trained
Phius Certified Consultants
Universities with CPHC Training in Curriculum
For a project pursuing Phius Certification, these professionals are critical to ensure the building is designed and detailed utilizing passive building strategies and is compliant with Phius Certification requirements. They are responsible for ensuring the building is compliant with all of Phius' requirements.Review all Requirements in the Phius Certification Guidebook
Building Energy Modeling
For projects pursuing the performance path (as opposed to the prescriptive path), the CPHC is responsible for modeling the project in WUFI Passive to verify compliance with the specified performance targets throughout design and post-construction.Learn more about WUFI Passive
Prescriptive Path Compliance
For projects pursuing the prescriptive path, the CPHC is responsible for analyzing the project using the Phius Prescriptive Path checklist and verifying compliance with the specified requirements.Learn more about the Prescriptive Path
