passivhausMAINE's Annual Fall Forum

passivhausMAINE's Annual Fall Forum brings a variety of speakers presenting projects from Maine and afar.  Our 2018 forum will focus on DERS - EnerPHit and Schools and Academic Institutions bringing to the fore the compelling stories of institutions that have embraced both the sustainability and resilience of passive house structures, while underscoring the long term cost savings.

Single family home renovations to EnerPHit standards will also be presented as we dive deeper into the 50 Houses project, demonstrating how we intend to track, compile and analyse data from retrofits to reduce the cost and time of these complicated projects.


Join us on Nov 1st for a live recording of Green Architects Lounge at Mechanics Hall- a festive evening with Phil Kaplan of Kaplan Thompson Architects and Chris Briley of Briburn, discussing their experience designing schools in Maine. Expect a surprise signature cocktail!

This year our Forum rounds out with a project tour of renovations in the Portland area on Nov 3rd.
