New York Passive House has published a great free guide to certification of multifamily Passive House buildings.
One of the example projects is the 68-unit affordable senior housing building that Duncan Architect is consulting on in Corona, Queens.
If you’re interested in high performance multifamily construction, download the guide.
With Passive House as an identified incentive by New York State Homes and Community Renewal for affordable housing financing, and funding organizations like the Community Preservation Corporation also recognizing Passive House, it is important to demystify the process and provide support to those developers interested in pursuing Passive House construction.
The Guide provides 8 clear steps most useful in making a successful project, 7 important reasons to get your development project certified to the international Passive House Standard, and a succinct outline of the certification protocol to get you across the finish line.
