From a design perspective, Passive House is feasible to be implemented in NYC’s high rise buildings. So what is stopping developers from taking the plunge and pursuing such projects? How much risk (real & perceived) is there for a developer to pursue a PH project? Are PH projects more daunting to a contractor?

This event will describe how NYC can overcome existing barriers in getting to the next level—implementing Passive House at scale. Attendees will walk away with knowledge of the best practices to educate their clients pursuing Passive House projects, as well as an understanding of the feasibility of scaling this effort.


Discuss the challenges faced by developers in pursuing passive house projects Identify the key challenges faced by contractors when working on passive house projects Apply lessons learned and Integrate concerns posited during the event into future projects/proposals
