The Building Energy Exchange (BE-Ex) is seeking 6-8 instructors to help teach New York City building owners, managers, and
developers the fundamentals of the Passive
House standard and its relevance to the NYC
real estate market. Download the application here.
Passive House is a high-comfort, ultra low energy
use building performance standard that is gaining rapid momentum in the NYC market. Despite its growing popularity,
many building decision-makers remain unfamiliar with the components of the standard, or the
challenges and benefits of its application. Many of the resources and trainings currently available on the topic are highly technical, time-consuming,
or geared towards single-family homes,
rather than the large multifamily buildings more common
in New York City.
BE-Ex has developed a 90-minute “primer” presentation to demystify the basic principles of Passive House for a non-technical audience of property owners, managers, and developers. BE-Ex is seeking 6-8 instructors to deliver this course.
Sessions will be presented at
BE-Ex’s resource center in downtown Manhattan
and at offices across New York City as part of a
“lunch and learn” style roadshow. Instructors are
expected to deliver roughly one session per month,
starting in early 2018. This teaching commitment
will extend for approximately one year. BE-Ex will market public sessions and will
encourage interested parties to request
presentations through our website.
Ideal candidates meet the following criteria:
• Prior teaching experience.
• 10 years experience in engineering, architecture,
• Detailed knowledge of the Passive House
• Willingness to advertise the primers among your
own professional networks.
• Commitment to memorize the material, and
provide periodic feedback.
• Certified PH Designer/Consultant (CPHD/C)
• Experience applying PH to large multifamily
buildings preferred. New instructors must attend a course materials
