Energy consumption is reduced by 90% in a passive home.
Collaboration in design and construction enables the built environment to be comfortable and attractive while also being affordable and sustainable. Exceptional energy efficiency is available without a green premium. Thoughtful design and careful construction can ensure the buildings of tomorrow are vastly better than those of the past. These are the tenets of the partners of the Bernhardt Passive Home. Enjoy the website, find us on Facebook and contact any of the project partners with specific questions.
