Joanna Huie becomes PassivHaus Consultant
Manifest Design Workshop Ltd are delighted to announce that one of its team, Joanna Huie, has recently qualified as a PassivHaus Consultant.
Joanna completed her Masters in Architecture: Advanced Energy and Environmental Studies at The Centre for Alternative Technology in Wales, gaining a First Class qualification. Whilst studying, she was impressed by the PassivHaus standard and its proven, quality-assured methodology for delivering low energy requirements and a comfortable and healthy internal environment.
Joanna joined Manifest in 2018 and, wishing to deepen her knowledge of PassivHaus, took the PassivHaus Consultant training course with WARM: Low Energy Building Practice. The training was extremely rigorous and in-depth, followed by a long and challenging examination.
Joanna was delighted to pass the exam and receive her seal and designation as a PassivHaus Consultant from the PassivHaus Institute in Germany. As we move towards a future where we are no longer dependent on fossil fuels for heating our buildings, PassivHaus offers a proven system for achieving this, whilst also providing excellent internal air quality.
We look forward to Joanna’s new work with the team at Manifest, presenting a comprehensive approach to building and retro-fit work within the context of our existing knowledge base of historic buildings and traditional craftsmanship.
