Getting Started with Your Project:

New building projects can commence with Green Point Design's two-cycle sketch design process. At the completion of this stage, enough should be known about the project for us to prepare a detailed service package and fee for the remainder of the project. Generally, fees from this stage are absorbed into the fees for the project as a whole. See a summary of what is included HERE.
We are Certified Passive House Designers and have passed an exam set by the Passive House Institute in Germany.
Passive House is a voluntary design and construction concept developed in Germany in the early 1990’s that delivers ultra energy efficient buildings.
Passive House involves an airtight super insulated building envelope, and a clever ventilation system that provides fresh outdoor air while recycling indoor temperatures.
