Passive House

Over 40 years of systems design and a decade of thermodynamics research and net-zero-energy building design preceded our 2011 foray into Passive House. We contend you’ve never met a design principal who will only specify systems they have personally implemented for their own family first.

Our principal project was our namesake:  Zenesis House – our founder’s own home that we retrofit, expanded and unified into a net-positive-energy passive house.

And from doing it ourselves, out of our own pockets and for our own family – you may be amazed at all the innovation, improvements and simplifications we developed and implemented along the way.

Yes. We have Certified Passive House Designers on staff and we also have Certified Large Building Verifiers. Don’t be impressed. The training is barely 1/10th of what we bring to Passive House design.
