Keeping the Engine Warm: Cold Climate Certified Passive House Car Dealership

September 15, 2020 @ 8:00 PM - 9:00 PM EDT

Free

The world’s first Passive House Car Dealership posed new design challenges and solutions. The client sought a low impact building that would support its growing business. Being located in a very cold, dry, windy climate, the improved efficiency, comfort, and durability that Passive House buildings deliver were crucial in convincing the client to commit to the standard. Strict corporate design standards, specific client requirements and operational realities forced the design team members to continually re-evaluate proposed solutions in order optimize the design. What resulted is an innovative building that will serve as a beacon for commercial Passive House buildings in very cold climates everywhere.
