Passive House buildings adhere to an exacting array of design fundamentals in creating air-tight structures. The result is less energy consumption to heat and cool the buildings and maintain consistent temperatures. Office environments benefiting from Passive House design have been demonstrably proven to enhance employee comfort, health and productivity, while at the same time reaping increased energy efficiency.
“This in my mind, is one of the next major evolutions of office building design: energy and sustainability. For these reasons, when Jay Longo of the architectural firm SCB informed me about Passive House, I immediately embraced the opportunity to learn more about it and consider if for our project,” said Mark Goodman, Mark Goodman & Associates.
SCB’s 310 N. Sangamon will be the largest Passive House office project in the nation.
