Event Description

Path to passive design: multifamily lessons learned

Passive building activity has increased exponentially in recent years—from single family residential projects to multifamily, and now the trend is moving towards commercial buildings. This presentation takes a look at several low and midrise multifamily projects across the country that were constructed at 0-5% additional cost over an EnergyStar baseline. Successful construction techniques and lessons learned will be discussed.

Following the technical training, there will be a panel of speakers that will share a case study of Madison’s landmark affordable housing multifamily project, Rethke Terrace. This project reached Passive House and LEED Platinum certification earlier this year. It became the first multifamily project in Madison (and the Midwest!) to reach this rigorous sustainable design goal. Attendees are also invited to join the developer and the design team for a tour of Rethke Terrace on Madison’s east side. https://www.seventhwave.org/education/onlocation/path-to-passive-house
