Passive Rowhouse Manual Presentation

Wed, 11/17/2021 - 5:00pm - 6:00pm


What does it take to make a rowhouse into a Passive House?

We have the guidance! From Opportunity-Seeking to Verification, the Passive Rowhouse Manual includes nine PH-specific chapters of practical information on renovating your rowhouse to Passive House standards. Thanks to our friends at Sustainable Energy Fund, we were able to make the Manual a reality, using information gathered from GBU’s 2019 Passive House Demonstration Project.

This presentation will outline why the Manual is important, who should read the Manual, and examples of design and construction approaches for renovating exiting Philadelphia rowhouses.
