June Meeting: CA's 1st Commercial Passive House project

Sun, 06/22/2014 -
3:00pm to 5:00pm

Clarum Homes is a custom home developer that specializes in high performance and Passive House homes. When they decided to develop a new office building for themselves, it only made sense to design and build it to the Passive House Standard. With a track record of successful projects together, Clarum Homes partnered with designers EID Architects and Passive House consultants Beyond Efficiency. Join us at the project location for a tour of the building, and a presentation by Katy Hollbacher and Lizzie Adams of Beyond Efficiency. They will discuss the various challenges and successes of this project, including assembly details, window specification, shading, phase change material, radiant cooling, the HVAC system, PHPP modeling, and more. $10 non-members, $5 supporters, free for PHCA members (sign up to become a member here: http://www.passivehousecal.org/memberships)
Beer will be provided.

This meeting is at a project site in Palo Alto. We encourage members and guests to use public transport. The venue is an easy 10 minute walk from the California Avenue Caltrain station.
