Emu’s Italian Passive House System

In 2016, Emu designed the first PHI certified construction system for a warm climate (Italy).

Now, we’re taking on North America.

EmuSystemIT001.jpgThe construction system is comprised different assemblies for the thermal envelope of a building, as well as their junctions. It details vertical envelope structures (external wall, wall to ground, wall to unheated space, etc); slab on ground, slab to external air, or slab over unheated space; as well as roof. It also has the installation details for external windows and doors, as well as skylights. Our contractor partner was Montenari Luigi SRL, and the system was designed specifically with local building techniques and climate zones of Italy in mind.
