Anthony Burns is the director of a boutique building design office in Melbourne Australis that specialises in custom design homes and achieving sustainability using the highly energy efficient Passivhaus building method.
In 2016 Anthony was involved in the design and documentation of a new home in Emerald Victoria, which was one of the early Passivhaus projects in Australia to be certified.
As a designer, Anthony wanted additional design tools that support Passivhaus projects and make the design process smoother, faster, and more accurate. This led to the development of PH Live Sync, which is now a fully developed tool that integrates Autodesk® Revit® directly with the Passive House Planning Package (PHPP)
Anthony hopes PH Live Sync will make the adoption of Passivhaus easier for designers and ultimately lead to more sustainable and energy efficient buildings around the world!
Anthony is a Registered Building Designer with more than 20 years’ industry experience in residential and commercial projects. Anthony has worked on several Passivhaus projects and is a Certified Passive House Designer and member of the Australian Passive House Association (APHA)
