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 our September conference—offer a guide?

Join us as we analyze the design and engineering processes for multi-family buildings, and the opportunities and challenges to making them Passive.
