“The Greenest Building Is… One That Is Already Built” – Carl Elefante
Several studies have shown that existing buildings account for up to 75% of a major city’s greenhouse gas emissions. As major cities employ climate protection strategies, deep energy retrofits of existing buildings are at the very top of their priority lists. Organizations like LEED, Retrofit New York, and Passive House all agree that a fully engineered façade system with continuous insulation and an airtight envelope is the only way for existing buildings to meet the strict energy efficiency standards that have already begun to roll out.
A deep energy retrofit transforms the environmental and economic performance of a building:
- reduced total carbon footprint (embodied and operating)
- lower utility costs
- increased rental premiums and property value
- improved occupant comfort and productivity
