FULL EXTERIOR RENOVATION
The Pre-Design Assessment is most beneficial from a projects earliest conception. The Pre-Design Assessment is recommended before building enclosure assemblies and critical components are chosen or fixed. The freedom to implement intelligent design choices early may save costly revisions to the renovation construction drawings. Akira Living’s Pre-Design Assessment service includes the following:
- A review of any existing renovation construction drawings to review floor plan layouts and verify any potential barriers from implementing an Akira Living super-insulated building enclosure.
- One meeting with the homeowners and/or contractors to present the EnerPHit and Passive House Standard and discuss the critical components. Explain how conventional building components such as exhaust fans and mechanical heating/cooling systems may be decommissioned.
- Provide an estimated budget on the anticipated cost to meet the EnerPHit Standard and optional cost to pursue an EnerPHit Certified Retrofit.
This service is an opportunity to meet with an experienced and professional Certified Passive House Designer (CPHD) to ask questions about the EnerPHit and Passive House Standard. Akira Living’s Pre-Design Assessment cost may vary based on proximity to Vancouver, BC. Contact Cody to find out more or to obtain a Pre-Design Assessment quote for your next project.
