Brookfield Homes recently constructed the first Certified Passive House in Colorado. It is also the first Certified Passive House in the US that was completed by a production home builder. Nathan St.Germain was the CPHC (Certified Passive House Consultant) for this unique and exciting project. A Certified Passive House must meet strict design standards for continuous insulation, thermal bridge free construction, air tightness and thermal comfort. The Passive House concept represents today's highest energy standard with the promise of slashing heating energy consumption of buildings up to an amazing 90%.
