    The house is located at SENAI, which is a school focused on developing construction labor (from Brick layers to Construction coordinators). This pilot project will be used to spread Passive House technologies:  it will serve as a seminar room for hand labor, engineers, architects and anyone who is curious about it.

    We also want to use this building to convince local manufacturers to produce the required high performance components. This will have a social impact, with teh creation of new jobs and knowledge sharing.
