Passive House Podcast Ep. 119: Mark Lyles, New Buildings Institute

Passive House Podcast cohost Zack Semke interviews Mark Lyles, Senior Project Manager at New Buildings Institute (NBI). The two conducted the interview in the PAE Living Building in Portland, Oregon, the site of NBI's headquarters and Oregon's first full Living Building. Mark shares news from NBI's work on the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC), his work helping to develop ASHRAE's Passive Building Standard (227p), his thoughts about the interplay between performance-based and prescriptive-based building code and standards, and his thoughts about what's on the horizon for Passive House.
