Join us for the second annual SHP Showcase where you’ll hear rapid-fire project presentations from graduates of our Sustainable Homes Professional (SHP) designation training!

Tap into insights from some of the freshest minds and building best practices that SHP participants have to offer. Hear from speakers that are building industry professionals and who have been selected for their outstanding SHP Final Projects that illustrate different approaches to successful high performance design and building in residential construction.

The SHP Project Showcase is free of cost and open to NW audiences who are looking for both project inspiration and practical applications. Anyone who is SHP curious or a current SHP participant will also find the session to be highly valuable. If you are not already a SHP course participant, for a limited time you can use the code '100THANKS' to receive $100 off the SHP online course. See below for more information! 

Project Showcase Presenters 

Each speaker will have just 15-minutes to present on one or more aspects of their SHP final projects &/or any homebuilding projects they've done since taking SHP, with the overall goal of highlighting valuable real-world applications to an audience of their industry peers. SHP Instructor, Stephen Aiguier, will facilitate the session and attendee Q&A will follow. The projects to be showcased will have demonstrated compelling or exceptional features that align with the SHP training curriculum.

SHP graduates have completed extensive coursework with our expert instructors, toured under-construction high performance projects, learned from product demos and guest speakers with expertise in their fields, and have demonstrated their capacity to incorporate what they’ve learned into their professional work. Now it's your opportunity to learn from them!

Justin Wolverton

Noyes Development Co.

Project Spotlight:
Having earned his SHP Designation back in 2017, Justin focused on taking Noyes Development's most challenging homes from Earth Advantage (EA) Platinum to EA Zero Energy Ready! Now all of the homes Noyes builds meet the EA ZER standard. Justin leads Noyes' construction quality and homeowner relations/sales, so you will hear him speak about what this progression entailed, how building ZER homes brought value to their overall brand/prescence and referral sales, as well as how Justin and his team benefited from the SHP course and designation. He will also highlight their overall focus on educating their sales team, potential buyers, and homeowners on the importance of high performance building approaches (see more info via Noyes Development's educational videos here). 

Melissa Mulder-Wright

Step by Step Design LLC

Project Spotlight: As an eco-adaptive architectural designer and aspiring Phius Certified Consultant, Melissa will take a retrospective look at a completed, but un-built design provided for a client in rural Washington featuring as many off-grid aspects as possible due to concerns about frequent utility failures and wildfires in the area. This resulted in attention to site orientation for optimal solar benefit, a fully electric home, above code roof and wall assemblies, a ground source heat pump, Heat Recovery Ventilation (HRV), non-toxic material use, waste mitigation, and a rigorous integrated design process. Melissa states that "the majority of my clients have at least one health concern that is a focus for their design goals -- improving indoor air quality is central to the health of everyone!"

Daniel Durham        

Durham Construction LLC

Project Spotlight:
 Daniel has chosen to showcase his own personal home, named 'Yume'. Yume is the Japanese word for "dream." Daniel came to select this name for two reasons: First, because it has been his lifelong dream to build his own home, and secondly, because it is a Japanese inspired modern home. This build is set to break ground in March of next year. Daniel will cover the importance of the Integrated Design Process (IDP) for Passive House Certification, as well as avoiding petroleum based insulation whenever possible, focusing on a quality envelope with a continuous air barrier and thermal boundary, resulting in improved indoor air quality. 

Optional Happy Hour in Portland 

We invite you to join us for an informal Happy Hour from 4-6PM on the same day as the Showcase. We'll be bringing together SHP participants from past, present, and future to network and celebrate their commitment towards high performance building.
