Advice regarding planning of Passive House buildings

We recommend that a certified Passive House Designer should be entrusted with the planning of your Passive House building or your EnerPHit refurbishment and that certified Passive House tradesperson should be engaged for execution of the construction. This will ensure trouble-free certification of the building.
