Passive House Primer

Date: June 20, 2018

Time: 12:00pm

Host: Building Energy Exchange

Type: Training/Workshop


Stay ahead of New York City’s changing energy codes and rapidly evolving real estate market. Join BE-Ex for a free lunch-and-learn seminar on Passive House – the high-comfort, ultra low energy-use building standard that is gaining momentum in the NYC market.

Buildings that meet the Passive House standard use 70-90% less heating energy than conventional buildings, have excellent indoor air quality, superior comfort, and are resilient in the face of extreme weather. Given these benefits, it’s no surprise that Passive House construction is gaining momentum in NYC, and that local building codes are also moving towards Passive House-levels of performance.

BE-Ex’s Passive House Primer is an engaging, one-hour seminar on Passive House fundamentals and their application in the NYC market. The Primer is ideal for property owners, managers, developers, and anyone interested in gaining a plain-English introduction to high-performance construction concepts. Architects, engineers, and design professionals new to Passive House will also benefit from this fun, introductory-level course.

A light lunch will be provided. Please register in advance to reserve your spot.
