What are Passive House construction standards and what do they have to do with affordable housing development?

Ryan Cassidy, Director of Properties with RiseBoro Community Partnership (formerly Ridgewood Bushwick Senior Citizens Council), will explain Passive House construction standards and the principles of super insulation, air tight building and apartment construction, eliminating thermal bridging, and energy/heat recapture/exchange. Passive House construction has been accomplished at the same costs as general construction methods, saves from 50% to 70% of standard energy usage, and is very appropriate for affordable housing development in New York City. We will also look at the potential hurdles and various crucial roles played by the CDC non-profit sponsor.

Mr. Cassidy oversees the operation of over 1800 units of affordable housing in nearly 200 buildings. He has also developed and monitored the construction of over 1,000 units of  affordable housing. His development experience ranges from two-family home ownership programs to large multi-family complexes with retail and community facility components. He supervised the construction with retail and community facility components. He supervised the construction of the first multi-family affordable Passive Houses in NYC and is a PHIUS Certified Passive House Consultant. RiseBoro is committed to attain Passive House standards for their entire pipeline, currently scheduled at 1,000 units across 12 projects in the next 3 years.

This event is applying for 2.5 CPHC CEUs.
