What do Passive House (Passivhaus) and the Tower at PNC Plaza have in common?
Pittsburgh and High Performance Building.
Last week we attended the 8th Annual North American Passive House Conference in Pittsburgh. We realize the passive house movement is growing momentum and expanding from a predominately residential focus-to include passive commercial and multi-family projects. While passive standards have not been implemented in many commercial or multi-family projects in North America, there is movement forward to incorporate high performance strategies, and those involved in the Passive House movement are at the forefront of this progress.
