April 26, Climate Ready Buildings Training
Event Description

New York City faces challenges resulting from a rapidly changing climate – buildings are facing increasing impacts from flooding, precipitation, and heat events. In addition, New York City has created some of the most ambitious climate legislation in the world, requiring that buildings drastically reduce energy use and carbon emissions while addressing increasing climate hazards.

Climate Ready Buildings is a free, online training developed by the Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) for HPD-financed projects. This training will provide help building owners, designers, and builders to create an understanding of NYC’s climate laws and HPD’s new design requirements, and will demonstrate strategies for high-performance, resilient, and healthy affordable housing.

The training will cover building electrification, Passive House principles, NYC’s Climate Resiliency Design Guidelines (the CRDG), and Integrated Design Practices (IDP). In addition, the training includes a compelling case study about one of HPD’s most innovative Climate Ready buildings built to date.
