NAPHN15 Conference

October 1 - 2, 2015

Hyatt Regency
655 Burrard Street
Vancouver, British Columbia

We are pleased to announce that CanPHI West will be hosting the 2015 North American Passive House Network Conference (NAPHN15) on October 1st and 2nd in Vancouver. It will follow the success of the NAPHN14 conference held this past September in Portland, Maine, which brought together a global community of Passive House designers, builders, suppliers, government officials, and policy analysts. Together with NAPHN, we plan to increase both the scope and scale of the event in 2015.

The conference will be held at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Vancouver, itself a leader in sustainability. The Hyatt Regency is minutes from beaches, shopping, restaurants, the sea wall, cycle tracks and transit options to numerous destinations.

The event program promises new partners in building science and policy, and world class education and networking opportunities. Vancouver, the City of Glass on the Pacific, has mandated carbon neutral new buildings by 2020 and currently accepts Passive House as an alternative to LEED certification in rezoning and development approvals.

Numerous Passive House projects are under construction and building permit applications for two large mixed-use buildings are currently being filed. Post-conference project tours in Vancouver and Whistler/Pemberton will showcase Passive House projects including a prefabrication plant and a public recreation facility. Courses, meetings, and social events planned before and after the two day conference aim to please sustainable building professionals and enthusiasts.

Visit naphn15.canphi.ca for program details, event information and to register for tickets.

We look forward to seeing you there!
