Queens, NY

Project Type

New Residential / Mixed Use - Passive House

Project Scope

New 60,000 SF, 8-story senior residence and community center building. The structural framing consists of poured-in-place concrete flat plate construction and the lateral system is concrete shear walls.

This building had to be designed on a mat foundation due to poor soil conditions and a high water table. This project was pursuing Passive House certification which required close collaboration of the structural detailing to prevent thermal bridging. It has since been awarded a Passive House Certification, being one of the largest Passive House Projects in the US.
