Innovative strategies to allow for deep energy retrofit projects

    Presented by paul a castrucci architects

    There lies in front of us the daunting tasks of radically de-carbonizing our cities in the coming decade. Standards such as Passive House represent part of the response. Deep energy retrofits also require an innovative delivery methodology. The solutions have to be scalable and cost-effective and integrate envelope and MEP into one system. Paul A. Castrucci, Architects will present two deep energy retrofit projects, discuss their challenges and look at design strategies for a cost-effective retrofit solution that allows tenants to be in place.

    Learning objectives:

  • Understand the key design elements a deep energy retrofit.
  • Discuss challanges of a deep energy retofit.
  • Get an overview of scalable and cost-effective solutions.
  • Learn about integration of building enclosure and MEP systems.
