Join Us at The Getting to Zero Forum

We are excited for one of our current Passive House projects, Engine 16, to be featured at the 2021 Getting to Zero Forum, hosted by the New Buildings Institute, RMI, and NYSERDA. During the conference, our own Michael Ingui will present at the Buildings of Excellence for Our Future session.

Once home to the Metropolitan Steam Fire Engine Company No. 16 in Manhattan’s Kips Bay neighborhood, the historic building became a Church in 1974. A full-scale, passive certified renovation will bring it back to life as a multifamily residence with a community facility on the ground floor.
