This pre-event for our quarterly meeting will be hosted at North Miller Passive Multifamily in Newburgh, NY by our very own Michael Robinson (Developer / Builder) and John Loercher of Northeast Projects (CPHC). Please join us as we discuss the design constraints of this historic masonry retrofit and see how they were addressed in the design work and in the field. The building will be at roughly 75% completion and many Passive House elements will be exposed including sections of the wall assembly and air barrier, window install details and mechanical system distribution. Don’t miss this opportunity to get Passive House tips right from the pros!

Objective #1: Witness tricky air sealing details in an existing retrofit and discuss what worked and what did not

Objective #2: Examine a window installation detail and discuss dealing with constraints such as historic designation and maximizing the psi-install value.

Objective #3: Discuss the building science involved with insulating existing masonry walls and witness how North Miller Passive Multifamily addressed different conditions.

Objective #4: Witness mechanical distribution in a Multifamily project including a DHW recirculation loop, a whole-building ERV and individual mini-split heat pumps.
