In the effort to bring Passive House techniques to scale, multifamily residential high-rises present a unique challenge. Can commercial buildings—like the Austrian 450,000 SF passive office building covered at UGC’s September conference—offer a guide?   Join Urban Green Council as they analyze the design and engineering processes for multi-family buildings, and the opportunities and challenges to making them Passive.   Speaker Lois B. Arena, PE, Senior Mechanical Engineer, Steven Winter Associates, Inc. Ms. Arena brings over 19 years of experience with new and existing residential projects, including on-site testing and diagnostics, design assistance, and energy modeling. She currently consults on high-performance buildings with Steven Winter Associates.
