The seminar ’LEED® Canada for Homes and the Passive House Standard’ on April 20, 2012 took a look at two prominent green building guidelines. While LEED® is the most recognized standard for green buildings in Canada, the Passive House Standard proves to become increasingly popular among architects, engineers and home owners. The workshop speakers highlighted differences and similarities between the two evaluation schemes and triggered a lively debate at the end of the session.
