Net Zero Retrofit of a Brooklyn Townhouse

Join us as we delve into a holistic presentation of a deep energy retrofit of a Brooklyn townhouse. This session will explore how the project team planned and executed a retrofit to meet a net-zero energy target, improve thermal comfort and air quality, protect the building from moisture, meet historic guidelines, and stay within a realistic budget – all while keeping the building occupied.

Expect hands-on insights as the project team guides you through strategies on how to leverage financing mechanisms for historic rehabilitation and solar tax credits, how to design and assure enclosure and mechanical systems, and how to safely perform blower-door-guided air-sealing.
