The eighth episode focuses on a journey of innovation. Kiss House started with a vision of how Passivhaus housing could be delivered at scale if the optimal marriage of design, performance and delivery was achieved.
As they prepare to deliver the first Kiss House projects, they join the BPI co-hosts to discuss the myriad challenges they’ve faced, the problems they’re solving and the innovation along the way. Joining from Kiss House will be Carli Jordan - MD, Mike Jacob - Head of Product and Innovation and Richard Green - Head of Manufacturing.
The team will explain their timber component-based construction system which has been designed to enable the delivery of high performance, low rise residential homes at scale. They will describe how they’ve achieved inbuilt architectural flexibility and their work to streamline and simplify Passivhaus.
Guests: Carli Jordan, Managing Director at Kiss House, and Richard Green, Director at Easi-space
If you are an architect, engineer, builder, contractor, or interested in low carbon high-performance building, the FREE Virtual Series of interactive seminars is for you!
The program was developed as part of a collaboration with the Accelerator and Hugh Whiriskey of Partel, who saw a need for more interactive programming to share lessons learned and best practices from the explosion of Passive House projects happening close to our original markets. “It started with a strong determination to support the transformation of the low-carbon building sector towards nZEB and Passive House through a new perspective, based on a collaborative approach,” Whiriskey said.
Building Performance Interactive (BPI) - Design it. Shape it. Build it. is virtual and free to attend, focused on inclusivity, collaboration, and the elevation of high-performance building as its guiding principles. Episodes will provide a platform for audiences in continental Europe, Ireland, and the United Kingdom to learn about Passive House design principles, nZEB (nearly zero energy building) techniques, and other high-performance building methodologies that can help ensure compliance with the increasingly rigorous standards and policy goals of governments throughout the UK, Ireland, and Europe.
Each episode will be 60 minutes comprising of live learning sessions featuring informative video and technical presentations, case studies, roundtable, and opportunities for Q&A discussion.
