Join the Building Energy Exchange and New York Passive House for a presentation of the remarkable headquarters of the NoVo Foundation, whose work empowers women of all ages around the globe. This 20,000 square-foot retrofit in Brooklyn breaks new ground in both technical and social justice terms by meeting the rigorous Passive House standard for retrofits, EnerPHit, while simultaneously requiring the construction workforce be at least 25 percent female. Learn how the design and construction teams delivered a high-performance envelope and highly efficient HVAC systems—producing healthy, comfortable and spacious offices and exterior spaces for a uniquely impactful organization. And learn how NoVo executed the project as a living model of their vision for a more just and balanced world. This is not a presentation to be missed.
