EVENT: The Historic Retrofits: A Path to Passive House

LOCATION: Mechanics Hall, Portland, ME

TIME: 5PM February 25, 2019

The lecture will address major challenges such as exterior appearance, preservation of original features, the complexity of insulating brick exteriors, ventilation, installation of delivery systems, and sourcing of materials that affect the renovations of historic buildings in Maine and other communities.

John will present his case study of a Victorian-era row house in Boston’s South End neighborhood. The historic brownstone was redesigned by ZeroEnergy Design’s experts for modern living and energy efficiency while preserving its original architectural details.


The event will also have a Q & A session for the audience to interact with the speakers.
