Für die zweite Auflage wurden die Regelquerschnitte im Hinblick auf den Passivhaus-Standard dimensioniert und die ökologische Bewertung aktualisiert und anschaulicher dargestellt, erneut zahlreiche Parameter unter die Lupe genommen und wissenschaftlich ausgewertet. Neu ist, dass die Bewertung auf der Grundlage des internationalen Passivhaus-Standards durchgeführt wurde.

In der zweiten Auflage finden Planer, Architekten und Auslober zuverlässige Baudetails für den Passivhaus-Standard, Kriterien für den Nachweis ökologisch optimierter Planung, Baustoffberatungswissen, Kriterien für die Ausschreibung und natürlich ein kompetentes Nachschlagewerk für die Beratung mit dem Bauherren.
