All architects hoping to design to the Passive House standard need to know how to use The Passive House Planning Package (PHPP): a set of 30+ linked Excel spreadsheets and a short manual, translated from German into English. A Designer's Companion to the Passive House Planning Package provides much needed supplementary guidance for purchasers of the PHPP. Concise, user-friendly and attractively illustrated, this step-by-step book is ideal for practitioners and students looking to utilise the PHPP as a design tool. Readers will be empowered as they better understand the essential criteria for all low energy building schemes, including: the impact of orientation, envelop to treated-floor ratios, and shading effects on the energy balance. Fully supported and endorsed by The Passivhaus Institut, A Designer's Companion to the Passive House Planning Package is invaluable for new and experienced users of the PHPP.
