Please note, this event has been rescheduled to May 25 at 1 p.m.

Join us for the fourth episode of the Energy Upgrades in Historic Buildings series, featuring a case study of the hyper-sustainable Hotel Marcel, formerly the Pirelli Building, in New Haven, CT.

Designed by Marcel Breuer, the iconic two-tiered brutalist building was originally commissioned by the Armstrong Rubber Company (later incorporated into tire manufacturer Pirelli) as its headquarters, with administrative and executive offices elevated over factory and testing facilities on the first two floors. 

On May 25, learn about the hotel, including the ambitious plan for its all-electric, net-zero energy design and pending Passive House and LEED Platinum certification. Specific challenges include air sealing and insulating a concrete shell, installing all-electric appliances for a commercial kitchen for the on-site restaurant, and implementing a state-of-the-art heat pump water heating system.
