Two-day seminar and workshop in Primošten

From the 5th to the 6th September in Primošten, within 12th OTMC international conference, intensive seminar and workshop on the Passive House design were held.
The course gathered together around almost 30 highly educated professionals from related and multidisciplinary fields of work: architects, civil engineers, mechanical engineers and environmental engineering experts. The seminar and workshop are part of the SEEDpass project activities’ dissemination program.
Dissemination of work, knowledge and experience was done by lecturers from Germany (Dipl. Ing. Arch. Wolfgang Hasper; PHI), Italy (Dr. Francesco Nesi, MSc. Eng Ileana Iannone; ZEPHIR), Greece (MSc. Eng. Stephanos Pallantzas; HPHI) and Croatia (Mag. Ing. Arch. Petra Kondres Tomažić; OIKON). In only two days lecturers successfully transferred, not only Passive House design basics, but also building physics calculation details related to specific buildings’ examples.
Lectured topics can be found listed on this LINK.


  • I really liked the seminar because it was well organized and there was nothing being mistified about. Wider perspective as well as details, which are very important, were passed on. Very good introduction into the subject. I went to another seminar, organized by someone else shortly after yours, just to see the difference in quality and I have confirmed the yours was better, even though the other one was also good having in mind the scarce offer of nZEB related seminars in Croatia.
    Thank you for being a milestone who motivated me into further continuous education  in this field.  Next year I’ll definitely join you for the full course and certification.

  • Interesting lecture carried out on in a dynamic way. Vivid presentation opened up new perspective for me regarding buildings’ thermal envelope.

  • Seminar was useful and well-conceived. Design principles and practical work in the PHPP were presented in an interesting way.
    Right now I’m in the realization of passive house in Šibenik, which I hope to be certified, and some new foundings about PHPP, tool which I have and use,were useful to me. Particularly useful was the part in which the experience in designing a Passive House in the Mediterranean climate conditions was presented. and also part where the specifics and details regarding microclimate locations were brought out.
    The seminar fulfilled my expectations, and in every respect improved my knowledge of the Passive House. I look forward to new gatherings and lectures.

Passivhaus is a building, for which thermal comfort (ISO 7730) can be achieved solely by post-heating or post-cooling of the fresh air mass, which is required to achieve sufficient indoor air quality conditions – without the need for additional recirculation of air.
