Skyline Engineering has recently completed several small residential houses utilizing the design ideals for Passive House construction. These projects utilize special wall and foundation systems to develop continuous insulated envelope for the building. This approach helps to achieve energy conservation through efficiency in thermal losses as well as solar gains. Skyline worked closely with the various project design teams to develop efficient and economic details.

We are involved with the following additional projects at varying levels of design and construction that include passive house ideals and design details:

  • 235 Montreal Street
  • 308 Coal Point Lane
  • 2670 Herbate Road
  • 986 Cowichan Street
  • 1068 Chamberlain Street
