    Ive just finished my second passivhaus project, so have now done a retrofit and a new build. I am a qualified passivhaus consultant and I'm looking to start working in low energy building. Im not sure how to go about this though. Has anyone done something similar or get any ideas how exactly to do this? Any advice appreciated!

    Partly out of curiosity and partly thinking it may be relevant to your plans ...

    You mention 'energy consultant' and 'qualified passivhaus consultant'. What exactly do those terms mean/refer to in your context?

    Yeah, I'd also like to know. Are you saying you went through certification just for your own project(s)?
    Hi Chris,

    Assuming you have good links with contractors who did what you asked them to do you are in a strong position to do baseline surveys for householders, make recommendations and then actually have someone who could do the work. The issue I have on a regular basis is not being able to find contractors. The experience you will have re air-tightness and dealing with thermal bridging will be invaluable.

    I suppose I did the PH consultant course to help with my own projects originally. I imagine my role could be having a critical look at plans for thermal bridging and running details through PHPP. Instructing people on airtightness taping and providing some quality control on site. Maybe even assisting with installation of MVHR.I don’t have a good list of PH friendly contractors. Struggled to find them myself!

    It could be worthwhile contacting local architects with a flyer to describe what you can offer as I guess many don't have PH skills/knowledge.

    You'd find a good niche in a standardized set of solutions and improvements for poor quality new builds, that you could 1. Easily explain to people looking to save on bills and 2. Could then rapidly and easily deploy with a before / after heat loss evidence.
