ProTour of Cathedral Square

Vermont's First Multifamily Passive House

This Pro Tour will feature Elm Place, a recently-constructed, 30-unit building which is poised to become the first multifamily Passive House structure in Vermont.
Hosted by Duncan Wisniewski Architecture, this tour will offer attendees an opportunity to learn about techniques the design team employed to satisfy Passive House standards while still meeting the strict affordable housing budget.
The clients have calculated that the strategies used to achieve the Passive certification only increased the budget by 2% compared to typical senior housing projects, making this a reproducible, affordable model for multifamily.
