Jordan Parnass presented JPDA's Star Garments Product Development Centre at the New York Passive House conference on June 16th.  This project is the sustainable renovation of a factory building in Sri Lanka, which is targeted to receive EnerPHit certification from the Passive House Institute.

The presentation detailed the unique challenges of designing, modelling and directing a project of this complexity in a climate that has seen few high performance buildings.

Lois Arena of Steven Winter Associates co-presented and discussed many of the project's unusual energy "process" loads, which are related to the industrial fabrication taking place within the facility.
