Event Description

From a design perspective, it is feasible to implement Passive House in NYC's high rise buildings. So what is stopping developers from taking the plunge and pursuing such projects? How much risk (real & perceived) is there for a developer to pursue a PH project? Are PH projects more daunting to a contractor?

This event will describe how NYC can overcome existing barriers in getting to the next level—implementing Passive House at scale. Attendees will walk away with knowledge of the best practices to educate their clients pursuing Passive House projects, as well as an understanding of the feasibility of scaling this effort.
