A Living Building's Construction Details

Join us to learn about the construction of PAE Engineers' new Living Building offices in Portland, Oregon, presented by Ed Sloop of Walsh Construction. Living Building Challenge and Passive House are kindred spirits; they both demand deep and measurable building performance gains. There are obvious differences, of course, both in the breadth of sustainability goals and in the philosophy around energy targets, but both approaches result in healthy buildings with very low EUI (energy use intensity). And most Living Buildings draw on similar passive design and construction strategies to the ones we use in Passive House practice. Ed dives into the technical, the technique, and the technology of the construction of this Living Building project, including its high performance envelope, energy recovery ventilation, radiant heating and cooling, solar PV, and more.
