October Forum: Sustainable Renovation



Sustainable Rehab:  Simple to Complex Fixes of Existing Buildings



Many people feel that a moderate or gut rehab needs to be expensive and include high tech devices; indeed, some simple rehab jobs save so much, they would be considered deep energy retrofits, although their cost is low to moderate.  Conversely, there are rehabs that are trying to approach Passive House Standards that are interesting and will make the buildings nearly off-grid.


In this presentation, two of GreenHomeNYC’s former Board Chairs show the simple to the complex, and will open the floor to your rehab questions.
