Introduction to Passive House Multi-Family Building

May 9, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

For many teams, it is an almost impossible challenge to simultaneously deliver high performance, cost efficient buildings while maintaining high customer satisfaction and profitability. It is not uncommon for high performance commercial buildings to cost 10% -20% more to build than conventional buildings. Adam Cohen of Passiv Science has been designing and building Passive House Commercial Buildings at costs comparable to typical new construction and is achieving Passive House level results. This workshop will explain the basics of Passive House design principles specific to Multifamily Buildings, we will also examine aspects of Integrated Project Management as will details, equipment, controls, built examples and areas for capturing money typically left on the table in conventional design-bid-build project delivery situations.
