EnerPHit retrofit of a derelict Multi-family building
Andrew Peel, Peel Passive House
This seminar explores the deep energy retrofit of a derelict building to the EnerPHit standard.  Numerous project constraints and site conditions presented substantial challenges to realising the project.  What emerges is a highly efficient, comfort, affordable multi-unit residential building that rehouses at-risk tenants: a true model of social, environmental, and economic sustainability.

The seminar offers two perspectives.  The first is the design perspective: how can the building be designed to achieve such an ambitious performance target.  The second is the developer perspective.  What approaches, processes, and tools are required to actually deliver the performance targets on time and on budget.

Transformational Change: Adopting the EnerPHit Approach for Social Housing Tower Retrofits
Tom Hunter, CityHousing Hamilton, Ya'el Santopinto & Graeme Stewart , Centre for Urban Growth and Renewal | ERA Architects
CityHousing Hamilton Corporation (CHHC) is embarking on a ground-breaking project to rehabilitate an aging 17-storey apartment tower using the ultra-low energy Passive House standard. The Ken Soble Tower transformation will convert this asset, built in 1967, into state-of-the-art housing. The first of its kind in North America, this project will bring together innovations in ultra-low energy retrofit, financing, and community benefit.
