Green Building March 13th Luncheon: PHIUS+ Passive Multifamily Buildings

Large multifamily buildings in mixed humid climates present unique challenges and opportunities for energy efficient design. Dominance of internal gains from plug loads, lighting, appliance density, and base building loads create energy balance profiles where heat gains are a serious issue and solar gains must be carefully controlled. Come learn about the PHIUS+ Passive Building standard and how this approach optimizes design of this building type to minimize cooling demand and energy use, delivering buildings with superior comfort, air quality and durability. Case studies of several multifamily projects transplanted to C’ville and optimized for this climate will be included.

This month’s presenter is Prudence Ferreira; a founding partner and Managing Director of Passiv Science LLC. Ms. Ferreira is a licensed instructor for the Passive House Institute US and regularly teaches the Certified Passive House Consultant (CPHC) training, WUFI Passive modeling, and Advanced Hygrothermal Analysis around the US. Prudence has served on the PHIUS Board of Directors since 2011 and is a founding member of the PHIUS Technical Committee. She has consulted on passive building projects across 7 different climate zones including sub-arctic, tropical and high altitude locations.
