Passive House Podcast Ep 77: Pablo Sepulveda, Aurecon

Cohost Matthew Cutler-Welsh interviews Victoria, Australia-based architect Pablo Sepulveda, of the engineering and design firm Aurecon. The two discuss Pablo's affinity for engineering due to the design power it confers, as well as Aurecon's work on the pioneering Ngā Kāinga Anamata project in Auckland, New Zealand. Ngā Kāinga Anamata is a pilot social housing project whose five buildings (30 units total) explore different approaches to reducing both operational and embodied carbon by employing different greenbuilding approaches (including Passive House) and construction schemes.
