October MBC Breakfast Program

Winthrop Center – slated to be the first commercial building in Boston with Passive House certification

MBC Breakfast Program Thursday, October 10, 2019 – 7:30-9:45am

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:
– The largest Passive House office building in the world, Winthrop Center, underway in Boston
by Millennium Partners
– Newly-completed Passive House dorms designed by SGA and built by Commodore Builders
– Important info from WSP on passive design strategies, certification requirements, etc.
