Stay ahead of New York City’s changing energy codes and rapidly evolving real estate market. Join BE-Ex for a free lunch-and-learn seminar on Passive House – the high-comfort, ultra low energy-use building standard that is gaining momentum in the NYC market.

Buildings that meet the Passive House standard use 70-90% less heating energy than conventional buildings, have excellent indoor air quality, superior comfort, and are resilient in the face of extreme weather. Given these benefits, it’s no surprise that Passive House construction is gaining momentum in NYC, and that local building codes are also moving towards Passive House-levels of performance.

BE-Ex’s Passive House Primer is an engaging, one-hour seminar on Passive House fundamentals and their application in the NYC market. The Primer is ideal for property owners, managers, developers, and anyone interested in gaining a plain-English introduction to high-performance construction concepts. Architects, engineers, and design professionals new to Passive House will also benefit from this fun, introductory-level course.

Instructor: Lois Arena
Lois Arena, Director of Passive House Services at Steven Winter Associates, has over 25 years experience in the building science field and extensive experience with new and existing buildings. Lois holds both US and International Passive House consultant certifications, and is currently consulting on projects ranging from single family homes to high rise buildings. Lois and is regularly invited to present at national conferences and private firms on topics ranging from moisture control in buildings to roadblocks to Passive House adoption.

Note: The Passive House Primer held on August 22nd will be a private seminar for ENV Architects.

The Passive House Primer is offered free of charge at offices across New York City and at the BE-Ex learning center in downtown Manhattan.
