Clark Road Passive House

Date: 2019-2020
Type: Design, Build
Location: Squamish, BC

We were given the amazing opportunity to design and build Squamish’s first single family certified Passive House. This was an exciting dream that came to fruition. Passive House has been an area of focus for Mike and the Blue Water Team for over 5 years. When our clients approached us after seeing our Diamond Head project back in 2018, they inquired if we knew anything about Passive House. It was music to our ears!

We teamed up with Pierre from Mizu Passive House who acted as our Passive House Consultant and we began to embark on an exciting new design process. The lot we were building on posed many challenges being in the flood zone, having less than ideal soil and it was also quite a compact lot. We worked together to navigate these challenges and came up with a beautiful design that checked off all the boxes on our clients wish list. It also, most importantly, reached Passive House Certification and looks gorgeous at the same time.

Our Blue Water Team consists of 5 Certified Passive House Tradesperons. We believe this is just one of the many reasons why this build is incredibly air tight and the attention to detail is outstanding.

We truly hope this project is the first of many Certified Passive Houses to go up in Squamish, and that we are granted with the opportunity to build them.

There is a better way to build.
