Passive House Verifier/Rater

Passive House (PHIUS+ Verifiers and Raters) perform third-party Quality Assurance and onsite verification for all multifamily and commercial passive building projects pursuing PHIUS+ Certification. Verifiers are well versed in the specific requirements of the PHIUS+ Multifamily Certification Standard v2.0 for performance and on-site verification of multifamily buildings pursuing certification under the PHIUS+ program.

The release of the climate-specific, cost-optimized PHIUS+ 2015 Passive Building Standard by Passive House Institute US (PHIUS) ignited the tremendous growth of passive building from coast to coast, with the most significant gains occurring in the multifamily housing (affordable and market rate) and commercial building sectors. Now onto the 2018 version, PHIUS+ Certified and Pre-Certified projects now total more than 1 million square feet across 1,200 units nationwide.
