South Bay Open House (and Jobsite) Tours

Sat, 01/28/2017 -
2:00pm to 5:00pm

Join us for a self-drive (or cycle) tour of three projects in Sunnyvale and Los Altos, CA. Owners and builders will open their doors for the afternoon to show off how Passive House building strategies can achieve remarkable comfort and outstanding performance.  Come out to see the five basic principles of Passive House buildings in action:

  • Heat Recovery ventilation systems - how are these installed and how do they work?
  • Super-insulated foundations, walls and roofs - find out how this changes the look and feel of these buildings.
  • Triple-pane windows and doors - take a peek to see if you notice the difference?
  • Air-sealing techniques - find out what worked, what didn't. 
  • Thermal bridge-free construction.

Date:  Saturday, January 28th, 2017

Time: 2.00pm - 5.00pm

Self-drive or bike from Sunnyvale Cal-Train Station. 


This tour is free to the general public. Maps and details will be provided at registration.
