MBC: Passive House Primer

October 10, 2019 @ 7:30 am - 10:00 am

Name: Passive Building – A New Standard for Energy Efficiency
Date: October 10, 2019
Time: 7:30 AM – 9:45 AM EDT
Winthrop Center – slated to be the first commercial building in Boston with Passive House certification
Event Description:
What is a Passive Building and what is the Passive House Building Standard? Why are more developers demanding it and more cities requiring it? Near net-zero energy use is driving future skyscrapers and higher-ed institutions to seek certification in the new standards and go beyond current LEED standards.
We present an interactive discussion which spotlights Winthrop Center, the largest Passive House office building in the world, a newly-completed Passive House dorm at Wheaton College built by Commodore Builders, and info from WSP on their design and execution of passive design strategies across the country.
