APHA Presents: Nabih Tahan (USA)

On Tuesday April 21st in Sydney, come along and hear from the APHA’s international guest speaker, Mr Nabih Tahan. Hailing from California, Nabih has worked as an architect in the USA, Austria and Ireland, which has put him in a unique position to compare the practices in these very distinct building industries.

Nabih has great experience he will share on large scale Passive House developments he has been involved in, and will present the fundamentals of PH through the experience of retrofitting his own home, as well as his experience with Passive House for a tall wood high-rise.

After spending many years working in Europe, Nabih returned to Berkeley, California and remodeled his own home to Passive House standard (which led to the establishment of Passive House California). Nabih now represents Cree Buildings, an Austrian company that has developed a system for tall wood buildings.

Take a look at the website, www.creebuildings.com , or this video to see how an eight story wood office building (as pictured) was erected in just 8 days. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wNblLm3m8UM
