Description

Passive House Minnesota to offer Construction Tour of Passive House in Saint Paul

Passive House Minnesota, the local NAPHN affiliate group and promoter of the international Passive House standard, together with TE Studio, Ltd. and Reuter Walton Construction, Inc., will offer a mid-construction tour of a Saint Paul, MN Passive House to showcase the cutting-edge building energy standard.

What makes a Passive House tick, behind the drywall? Join local Passive House enthusiasts for a rare in-process look at what it takes to build truly carbon neutral.

The tour will focus on Passive House windows, an integral part of the Passive House envelope and one of five key components that make up a Passive House. The windows in a Passive House are extremely high performing, feature triple pane glass and European tilt-turn operation.

Stop by the Lexington Parkway Passive House to see the newly installed Passive House windows.

“The Lexington Parkway Passive House is not only the first certified Passive House in the City of Saint Paul, Minnesota, but also a beacon for sustainability, resilience, easy ownership and aging-in-place.”
—Tim Delhey Eian, CPHD, TE Studio, Ltd. and Passive House Minnesota

“I believe there can be no compromise between aesthetics and performance, so windows and doors must be as intelligently crafted as they are beautiful, inside and out. That's why I'm excited to use Tanner Windows and Doors for our projects.”
—Stephan Tanner, Tanner Windows and Doors
