NY PassiveHouse Meetup

Wednesday, Nov 28, 2012

This home is a sort of 'second draft' of many of the details and ideas we worked on as the Construction Managers for the Parsons-Stevens 2011 Solar Decathlon home. The cabin will be a super-insulated, air-sealed, mechanically ventilated and ultra-energy-efficient structure. While not a true 'Passive House', it will include many of the common Passive House strategies in its construction. BLDGtyp also utilized many parts of the the Passive House energy modeling package to evaluate design alternatives during the design phase.

The BLDGTYP team is very excited about bringing their experiences back to NYC and share all their lessons learned with NYPH members, focusing on construction techniques and energy-efficiency strategies they included in the design + experienced in the building process - of course it was concluded with a (successful) blowerdoor test.

Come and hear Ed May present how successful they were in getting the building airtight - and what this means for their final heat demand number in their PHPP. For a preview and more info about this gorgeous design/build project - visit their blog and website.

Date: Wednesday, November 28, 7:00 pm
