Quality Control and Inspections
Our Passive House Institute (PHI) certified prefabricated panels undergo engineering inspection and a 55 point quality control inspection which includes a photo and video journaled library that is part of the homeowners manual package.
The panel certification through the PHI assures that our panelized system and adjoining systems will operate with the energy efficiency that meets the IPHI requirements. We also conduct multiple blower door tests to ensure airtightness throughout the project, and other quality assurance tests. starting from the first install of the airtight superstructure.
Quantum Passivhaus’ processes, production standards and team expertise is the reason we are able to maintain production and install schedules and budgets. And as you experience the energy efficiency of your new Quantum Passivhaus home while the cost for heat and cooling continue to increase, I am sure you will be amazed with your predictable energy savings month after month for many years to come.
Another benefit in the Quantum Passivhaus prefab process over many others is that we experience a 1.5% to 2% waste on our projects which compares to approximately 9% for on site construction. Those savings are transferred back into your project as a value and not a wasted cost.
On-site Alterations or Changes
Because our specialized load bearing points are continuous and not required over each opening, on-site alterations or changes to doorways or window placement are made easy and efficiently reducing labour rework costs by up to 60% if needed.
Proven Cost Effectiveness
Quantum Passivhaus’ prefab and design process has our pricing at or within 10% conventional construction. Our team has leveraged every experience and opportunity to continue building the most innovative and cost effective prefab passive house system in Canada. We are cost competitive to quality construction being performed by quality builders.
A Smart ‘Vapour Breathable’ System
We have focused not only on efficiency and predictability but also on building synergy and breathability.
Like Gore-Tex wrapped fleece jacket our panels are airtight stopping wind penetration and airflow (think heat leaving!), yet allowing humidity to flow through diffusion in a controlled fashion. The interior vapour barrier is also a “smart” barrier keeping humidity in your living space during winter when you need it most, and letting it out during the summer. This prevention of airflow, while permitting slow vapour transfer is key to keeping your structure moisture damage free.
