Fifteen Utile Projects Are On The Path To Passive House Certification

Utile collaborates with our clients and partners to prioritize sustainability. From Registration, to Design Certification, to Certification, Phius’s climate-specific, cost-optimized standard ensures a high quality environment for residents and a sustainable building for the planet.

Projects earn Phius Design Certification when their energy models are reviewed and approved by the Phius Certification Staff. This review process ensures the project is designed to hit all targets outlined by Phius’ climate-specific, cost-optimized standard. Projects achieve Phius Certified after a third-party quality assurance inspection by a Phius Certified quality assurance professional to confirm the designs were properly implemented and will perform as modeled.

You can view the list of all certified projects in the Phius Certified Projects Database – the most comprehensive database of passive projects in North America. Below are fifteen Utile projects that are pursuing or have achieved various stages of Phius Certification, as of November 2023.
