This session will discuss projects that have integrated Passive House standards, including scaling up Passive House from single-family homes to multifamily buildings and NYSERDA's adoption of Passive House in the design of its new Multifamily New Construction Program. AEA will provide an in-depth overview of enclosure and mechanical system design considerations, quality control, testing methodology, and lessons learned from the in-progress construction of the HANAC Corona Senior Housing development, a 68-unit 8-story affordable housing project located in Corona, Queens NY, addressing the affordability and comfort needs of low-income seniors. Hear about the challenges these projects have faced and collaborations and innovations developed to bring the projects together.
