Passive House Affordable Multifamily Design Manual
Event Description

In the next eleven years, everyday architects, builders, developers, and engineers will face challenges tonormalize the Net-Zero Energy (NZE) housing design.. Simplified, demystified, comprehensive, and straightforward strategies for approaching any sized NZE multi-family building is necessary to effectively and quickly train industry professionals. While there is an ever-increasing array of products and systems currently flooding the sustainable building market, how does one begin to ask the right questions with choosing the best energy efficiency measures and methodology?

We are energy efficiency building experts with twenty years of designing multi-family high-performance buildings and more recently, five years of working on multi-family affordable Passive House projects. We created this workshop to provide design, development, and building professionals with a step-by-step guide to cost-effective strategies for approaching affordable multi-family Passive House buildings.We will provide a manual, delivered in the form of a “decision tree” with pros and cons associated with the two or three most cost-effective and energy efficient strategies for managing all aspects of designing a multi-family Passive House building, including metering, monitoring, heating, cooling, ventilation, hot water, site-built and prefabricated envelopes, foundations, and airtightness. An Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) provides a strategic backbone to the manual and is demonstrated through several case study projects.
