Cranshaw Surpasses a Dozen Passive House Certified Professionals
Twelve Cranshaw estimating, management and field professionals have achieved Certified Passive House Builder (CPHB) accreditation from the Passive House Institute US (PHIUS): Andrew Bosco, Dave DeBellis, Cal Delisi, Thomas Houlihan, Liam Lawson, Brendan May, AJ Martucci, Jake McManus, Isaiah Moldenhauer, Nick O’Connor, Alec Petrosian and Jimmy Temte. These twelve joined two CPHBs, Bryan Miller and Evan Hall, who were certified in 2020.
Passive House is a standard for energy efficiency in a building which increases occupant comfort while conserving the amount of fossil fuel needed to continually heat and cool. It results in ultra-low energy buildings that require little energy cooling and consequently reduce a building’s ecological footprint.
For a project pursuing Passive House Certification, CPHBs are critical to ensuring the building is built and operating to the required plans and specifications. CPHBs are construction professionals who understand how to apply passive building techniques, including airtight enclosures, high-performance window installation, passive design strategies, field quality assurance and site management.
With the increasing importance of Passive House, particularly in multi-family housing developments, Cranshaw looks forward to being a part of building a greener and more sustainable future.
