Passive House is a is a rigorous, voluntary standard for energy efficiency in a building, reducing its ecological footprint. It results in ultra-low energy buildings that require little energy for space heating or cooling. Buildings that are designed to this standard are intended to use 80-90% less energy than a typical building.

Parkdale Landing is the first building Passive House building under construction in the Hamilton region and includes 57 affordable apartments with ground floor retail space. Parkdale Landing includes the renovation of the former George and Mary's Tavern along with an addition of new construction. As part of International Passive House Days, you are invited to come learn about the project and what energy-saving, innovative elements are planned in the building's design. This interactive discussion will be led by members of the architectural team (Invizij Architects), mechanical engineer (CK Engineering), Air tightness consultant (Fourth Pig: green & natural construction), Owner (Indwell), and the Construction Manager (Schilthuis Construction). The team is also currently beginning construction on two other Passive House projects in Hamilton and Woodstock and will share briefly about these different construction types as well.

At 2:15pm we will shift gears and travel 2km NE to the actual construction site for Parkdale Landing at 205 Melvin Ave. Note that this building is under construction with only the foundations and partial ground floor completed. Please bring certified work boots and a hard hat, if you have them, otherwise there will be some available to borrow. Please bring warm clothing for the site tour and RSVP by contacting [email protected] or replying to this email. Thanks!
