WEBINAR: Healthy Homes: Sheridan Small Home Virtual Tour, Providence RI
Wed November 3 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
This week’s webinar is presented by CLEAResult
This innovative 5-unit project was designed by RISD students and is being built by ONE Neighborhood Builders in partnership with apprentices from Building Futures. All 5 units are in different stages of construction and are on track to officially certify as Passive House. This interactive presentation brought to you by Jon Erickson, the Passive House Verifier for the project, will include a virtual tour and drone footage and will cover:
- Passive House Certification
- High performance construction techniques
- The building science behind it.
- Design concepts using style and site renderings.
- The process from the foundation slab to finished roof with video virtual walkthroughs. Participants will learn about exceptional air tightness & mechanical ventilation, roust insulation that consists of a continuous layer and very good windows. They will take way how these structures are constructed, tested and verified.
- PHIUS+ certification requirements, how they are achieved and the benefits behind the concept and build.
- How a multitude of funding recourses can be coordinated to make projects happen. – Sheridan Small Homes is a recipient of Zero Energy for the Ocean State (ZEOS) funding from the Rhode Island Office of Energy Resources (OER) & Rhode Island Housing (RIH) and is receiving incentives and technical support such as trades trainings, Energy Star and DOE ZER certification and Passive House Verifier services through National Grid’s Residential New Construction Program and Zero Energy
