Join BE-Ex on March 5th for an exciting opportunity to discuss the application of Passive House to a rare typology in a South Asia climate. While much Passive House activity is focused on the new construction of residential buildings in cold-temperate climates, the Starr Innovation Center successfully utilizes the Passive House standard on the renovation of a mixed industrial-commercial building in a tropical climate.
The first Passive House certified project in South Asia and one of only two factories certified in the world, the Starr Innovation Center combines a garment manufacturing facility and offices within a highly efficient envelope that reduces total energy by 70% and dehumidification energy by 90%. Completed in 2018, the building offers highly improved working conditions including far superior air quality, consistent temperatures, and access to daylight throughout.
