The Wood Innovation Research Lab Achieves Passive House Certification

July 12, 2018

The Wood Innovation Research Lab has met and exceeded the exacting internationally recognized Passive House.

Building an ultra-energy efficient industrial-style building in a northern climate is no easy task, but the Wood Innovation Research Laboratory (WIRL) stands as proof it can be done. Home to researchers seeking to discover novel materials and techniques for the next generation of tall wood buildings, the laboratory is itself an engineering marvel. It is a certified Passive House, the first building of its type in North America to exceed the exacting international standard.
