Large multifamily buildings in mixed humid climates present unique challenges and opportunities for energy efficient design. Dominance of internal gains from plug loads, lighting, appliance density, and base building loads create energy balance profiles where heat gains are a serious issue and solar gains must be carefully controlled. Come learn about the PHIUS+ Passive Building standard and how this approach optimizes design of this building type to minimize cooling demand and energy use, delivering buildings with superior comfort, air quality and durability. Case studies of several multifamily projects transplanted to C'ville and optimized for this climate will be included.
