Boston Adopts Passive House Requirements for Multifamily
As reported in Building Design + Construction, the City of Boston recently adopted Massachusetts's new Stretch Code of sustainability standards, which includes a requirement for every new multifamily building built in Boston to meet passive building requirements starting January 1, 2024.
This represents a big step in the right direction for sustainability! Creating Passive House buildings has unique challenges, but we know we have the skills to achieve higher performing buildings without sacrificing great design.
We're currently working on multiple Passive House developments totaling 673 units of housing - check out more on a few of those projects here:
1234-1240 Soldier's Field Road includes 534 units of housing; two of the four buildings in the development are being designed to Passive House standards.
52 New Street includes 110 affordable housing units and ground-floor retail and is targeting Passive House certification.
