Lifetime Achievement

Harold Orr, P.Eng..

harold_orrHarold Orr obtained his Bachelor of Engineering degree in 1959 and his Master of Science in 1962 from the University of Saskatchewan. His Masterís thesis "Studies and Improvements to an Air Infiltration Instrument" was the result of work done at the National Research Council (NRC). When he completed his thesis, he continued to work alongside Rob Dumont on problems of air leakage in buildings and thermal resistance of building materials at NRC. He also designed and built the first "blower door", which is still the standard instrument to measure tightness of build ings.

Harold was one of the principals on the team that designed the Saskatchewan Conservation House (SCH), the house was the idea behind the R2000 housing program in Canada, and the Passive House program in Europe and the USA.

In 1986, he retired from the NRC and worked as a private consultant and taught engineering at Oklahoma Christian College.

From 1985 to 2006 Harold was a member of CSA (Canadian Standards Association) committees on wood preservation, preserved wood foundations, and shingles and shakes.
In 2015, he received the Pioneer Award at the International Passive House Conference 2015 in Leipzig, Germany.
Harold worked with Rob Dumont at the NRC promoting energy efficient buildings in the 1970ís and 80ís. In addition, Harold traveled extensively promoting energy conservation both as a government scientist and as a private engineer.

Harold was very good at making technical issues easy to understand, which helped to spread his knowledge to a wide audience.
