Reaching the "Impossible" 4th Story in Source Zero Energy Multifamily Housing

In densely populated buildings, it is typically extraordinarily difficult to achieve net-zero energy above three stories. This team worked together to overcome the industry standards that state only low rise and low-density buildings can achieve net-zero energy. The end result is a PHIUS+ Source Zero pre-certified 5 story multifamily urban environment affordable housing development located in the Chicagoland area. This panel provides detailed discussion of the implemented strategies from the various disciplines in order to help progress knowledge of net-zero energy dense development.
