TS106 - Shifting Gears: A Passive House Car Dealership in the Making

Thursday, December 5 from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM « Back

Early Bird Price until Nov.8th: $50 | Regular Price after Nov.8th: $55

This session will explore the design challenges and solutions of the first Passive House Car Dealership in the world. The client sought a low impact building that would support its growing business. Being located in a very cold, dry, windy climate, the improved efficiency, comfort, and durability that Passive House buildings deliver were crucial in convincing the client to commit to the standard. Strict corporate design standards, specific client requirements and operational realities forced the design team members to continually re-evaluate proposed solutions in order optimize the design. What resulted is an innovative building that will serve as a beacon for commercial Passive House buildings in the region and province.
