Four team members with RJC Engineers have recently earned their Certified Passive House Designer designation, joining their colleagues who have been similarly trained.

The newly certified professionals include:

  • Parvin Asadi, a building performance engineer based in Vancouver
  • Duncan Rowe, a principal based in Toronto.
  • Maddie Reid, a design engineer based in Toronto.
  • Mohammad Fakoor, P.Eng., a senior building performance engineer based in North Vancouver.

Passive House is a voluntary, highly rigorous performance standard for energy efficiency in design and construction. Buildings that meet the standard require far less heating and/or cooling than traditional structures do.

“I am passionate about making buildings better, greener and healthier and I am a strong believer in an integrated design approach, where building energy analysis/simulation can play a vital role in meeting sustainability goals at an early stage,” says Asadi. “This designation directly aligns with my values, skill sets and interests.”
