Don't miss this progress report on 4 affordable multifamily buildings in various stages of design construction. Project teams will share lessons learned which have impacted the ability to deliver high-performance housing within the constraints of limited construction budgets and difficult sites.
Gain understanding of how affordable high-density multi-family housing planned in urban environments – as building typology - creates opportunities to design to Passive House Standards;
Gain knowledge distinguishing between established Passive House exterior envelope detailing and project-specific design challenges – such as for reducing thermal bridging at windows, sunshades, roofing penetrations, foundation transitions + equipment supports;
Gain understanding of challenges + lessons learned for successful construction administration of a Passive House multi-family building + addressing unforeseen field conditions;
Understand the challenges to meet Passive House requirements based on buildings with mixed uses, heights +foot print configurations.
