Participant Testimonial

This interactive webinar is truly fantastic for anyone planning to build sustainably in the many senses of the term “sustainable” from healthy materials, availability, environmental impact, strategic use, and more.

Rather than pouring through a plethora of information and misinformation, EkoBuilt have curated a selection of key considerations and relevant topics to discuss in a well-rounded agenda centered around the design and building principles of passive houses. Jaison and Paul also take the time to address any and all questions, even if a topic needs to be revisited.

It is well worth the time to bring any questions and concerns in building to the EkoBuilt team. Webinar participant Michael Lam
