Hammer And Hand - Seattle will host a tour of the city's first Passive House, Courtland Place, on Thursday, July 12. Led by the project's builder and Hammer And Hand supervisor Dan Whitmore, the free tour will give participants a first-hand experience of the indoor air quality, thermal comfort, and efficiency made possible by the high performance Passive House building energy standard.
The Passive House building energy standard, also known as ‘Passivhaus', combines straightforward building technologies with advanced computer modeling to achieve 80% gains in energy efficiency compared with conventional structures.

"The beauty of Passive House is its simplicity," said Whitmore. "We're able to eliminate big mechanical systems and gadgetry and instead use modern building science to design and construct super-efficient buildings. Big gains in energy performance become possible at a modest cost."
