Climate resilience advocate and Passive House Specialist, Monte Paulsen, passed away on June 22, 2024. Monte worked with RDH from 2016 to 2023 and was instrumental in establishing our position as leaders in the Passive House space. Monte was passionate about addressing climate change in the built environment, lighting up all who knew him with his infectious spirit. He led the industry through education, sharing generously with the building community and in particular with the next generation through his energetic teaching and mentorship. Monte played a key role in leading many large and complex projects to achieve the stringent Passive House certification, paving the way for a new standard of energy and carbon performance in buildings in British Columbia and beyond.

Monte will be dearly missed by his friends and colleagues at RDH. We extend our condolences and deepest sympathies to his family, and all those who knew him.
