This year's conference focuses on the "path to net-zero," introducing new features such as a Bridge Track for those new to passive building and a slate of "Mini Keynote Addresses'' from top thought leaders in the industry on topics such as using Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) towards carbon neutral, cost-neutral high-rise affordable housing, retrofits in place, electrification of systems and passive building science, as well as several tours of notable Phius projects throughout the city and surrounding suburbs (tour tickets sold separately). PhiusCon will also host its eighth annual Phius Design Competition, displaying the most innovative, high performance Phius certified projects.
Additionally, a large exhibit hall brimming with state-of-the-art technologies and systems from leading manufacturers in the high performance building industry, relevant for passive and zero energy building, will be onsite for exploration and learning. Open during the show, the Exhibit Hall will also be open to the public for preview the night before the conference (October 25 from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm) at no cost, providing a unique opportunity for those interested in exploring more about Phius and passive building.
