Vancouver promotes Passive House Standard

The City of Vancouver has the target to have all new construction achieve zero emissions by 2030. The Passive House standard was identified to have great potential helping the City achieve this goal. In support of high performance design and construction, the City has introduced and is working on implementing incentives and solutions for homeowners, builders and developers to make it most cost efficient to achieve this standard.

Marken Design + Consulting is one of the leading Passive House Design & Consulting professionals in Canada with over 30 projects to date since 2008, including several prefab Passive Houses.
