Description

February 26, 2019: Speaker Event - Transformational Change: Deep Energy Passive House Retrofits for Aging Social Housing

Topic:

A team lead by ERA Architects is engaging in Passive House low-energy retrofit of a 17 Storey Social Housing apartment tower in Hamilton. The Ken Soble Tower transformation project will convert this asset, built in 1967, into state-of-the-art housing. The first of its kind in North America, this project will bring together innovations in ultra-low energy retrofit, financing, and community benefit. This presentation will outline the process, innovations and challenges of the design process of the multi-disciplinary consultant team, inclusive of structural, mechanical, electrical and Passive House consultants.
