TOMORROW! Passive Landmark: A First For New York

Passive House, the high-comfort, low-energy building standard, is enjoying a huge amount of attention in New York City policy circles. Passive House is gaining recognition as an effective strategy to massively reduce energy consumption in commercial and residential building sectors.

Bright ‘n Green features many Passive House elements, such as, an airtight building envelope, thermal insulation, southern facing site orientation for passive heating/cooling and daylighting, and 24/7 ventilation and air recycling, including a heat recovery ventilator and a earth heat exchanger.
