Jeff Rios to Present at Passive House Symposium
Don't miss Jeffrey Rios, PE's presentation at The Passive House Network's Online Symposium on November 2. "Restoring the Past, Protecting the Future: Decarbonizing Historic Skyscrapers" explores challenges the AEC industry is faced with in decarbonizing existing building stock.
How can we transform landmarked, high-rise buildings with large carbon footprints into high-performing, energy-efficient ones that respect their history? The answer can be found in the deep energy retrofit of NYU's Rubin Hall. Designed to meet EnerPHit certification, Rubin Hall serves as a model for the billions of square feet of pre-war construction in New York City and beyond.
This presentation will be given by AKF's Jeff Rios and Rubin Hall project partners:
Cecil Scheib of New York University,
Dylan Martello of Steven Winter Associates,
Cheryl Saldanha, P.E. of Simpson Gumpertz & Heger (SGH) &
Michael Syracuse AIA LEED AP of FXCollaborative
