Promoting Passive House Design

Joe Giampietro, NK’s resident Passive House expert, took to the podium last week during the PHnw5 Conference in Portland to share details of our next Passive House concept, a groundbreaking Passive House apartment building in Seattle.  Joe discussed the multi-family low-energy design processes that NK incorporated; he also provided a demonstration of cutting edge designPH 3D modeling software, which NK used to simplify early design phase modeling.

Passive House is the world’s leading standard for energy efficient construction. A certified Passive House uses 90% less energy to heat and cool the home than standard built homes.
