Christina McPike and Kate Doherty talk about an adaptive reuse project—The Tyler—as an example of the collaborative process between a developer and Passive House Designer. They will discuss what it took to give this school a new life as 55+ housing while also getting it to Passive House level efficiency. The speakers will go through some of the intricacies of the EnerPHit program compared to new construction Passive House and some challenges they faced on this project with words of wisdom to other developers taking the leap into Passive House.
