Best of GreenBuild Series Webcast: Passivhaus Office: A Real World Case Study

With the introduction of the more stringent energy requirements of LEED v4 and the coming 2030 Challenge, building designers are looking for new strategies to achieve greater energy performance.  In Munich, Germany, Intep and Epsten Group worked together on NuOffice, a Passivhaus inspired office building which achieved 94 points and LEED CS 2009 Platinum Certification.  Participants will learn how Passivhaus principals and advanced strategies and technologies such as passive ventilation, activated radiant slabs, geothermal systems (geothermal absorption heat pump and free geothermal cooling), exhaust air energy recovery, and photovoltaics were applied to design and construct a building 53% more efficient than the ASHRAE 90.1 2007 baseline building.  The presentation will explore the basic principles of the Passivhaus standard and how they were applied at NuOffice, the challenges encountered in optimizing the energy performance of a speculative core and shell project, and the difficulties the project team overcame in reconciling European techniques and energy systems with North American energy standards like ASHRAE Standard 90.1 and the LEED Rating System.  The presentation will also include a look at post-occupancy energy consumption data from NuOffice and explore how the project’s Passivhaus inspired design is performing relative to design expectations.

Learning Objectives

  • Participant will be able to recognize the origins and basic principles of Passivhaus and how they were applied at NuOffice.
  • Participant will be able to recognize some of the advanced technologies used at NuOffice to achieve greater energy performance. 
  • Participant will be able to recognize the challenges inherent in improving the energy performance of core and shell projects and adapting European systems to North American standards. 
  • Participant will be able to recognize how the design assumptions of Passivhaus inspired building relate to the actual energy consumption, operations, and maintenance of the facility.

Presenters:

  • Presenter: Pete Choquette, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, ID+C, O+M, Design and Consulting Department Manager, Epsten Group, Inc. Atlanta, GA
