Description

This Research Insight highlights the findings of a post-occupancy evaluation of a 6 unit multi-unit residential building built to a very low energy consumption standard. The evaluation included energy and water consumption, occupant comfort and air quality, hygrothermal performance of the enclosure, and financial metrics. The research showed that, in this particular project, significant reduction in space heating performance can be achieved with a modest incremental cost compared with code-compliant construction of similar quality.
