Ken Soble Tower Retrofit sets sights on EnerPHit Standard

JMV Consulting is working with ERA Architects to take an aging 17 storey CityHousing Hamilton apartment tower and transform it into a Passive House Retrofit. Built in 1967, the tower has 146 units which will be converted into affordable senior housing. The target of the project is to reduce carbon emissions by 90% and reach the EnerPHit standard of 25 kWh/m²/yr heating, 25 kWh/m²/yr cooling and 120 kWh/m²/yr in total primary energy use.

JMV consulting is the Passive House Designer on this project. For more information about the project, or Passive House Certification for large projects: contact us.
