Window City is gearing up to begin their first Passive Building project in Hoboken, NJ in spring of 2018. This will be the first completed Passive Building project developed in the United States.

The demand for more sustainable building options is increasing at a rapid rate and is predicted to be one of the fastest growing industries in the world.

A new term and trend within this demand by the name of Passive Building is beginning to pique the interest of consumers.

Window City is gearing up to begin their first Passive Building project in Hoboken, NJ in spring of 2018. This will be the first completed Passive Building project developed in the United States.

Window City will be supplying and installing all windows and doors for the project owned and operated by Bijou Design Build LLC.

In order to meet Passive Building regulations, all windows and doors must be energy-efficient and achieve certain values depending on the climate each Passive development is located in. The window frames must be well insulated and fitted with Lo-E glazings filled with Argon or Krypton to prevent heat and cold transfer.

Window City President, Michael Mastroberti, stated, “We are looking forward to the start of this project. It is a true honor to be working side-by-side with Bijou Design Build and sharing their mission on green building practices. This is more than just a construction job, this is a movement for a better way of living that keeps the community and its environment in mind.”

Window City is working with NeϋFenster, a window and door manufacturer located in Austria and Canada, who specializes in Passive Building window and door products. Each window and door will have triple coated Lo-E glass with Argon.

Passive Building is an innovative way of developing homes and buildings with its main goal of attaining extreme energy efficiency. Passive structures are air-tight, have continuous insulation, use triple-paned windows and utilize a specialized system for controlling air quality.

It is based off a meticulous standard for increased energy efficiency in a building and sequentially reducing its carbon footprint. These buildings can operate using 75%-95% less energy compared to traditional buildings.

Most passive house work takes place in the design stage because every element has to work together in order to produce the benefits. Materials, specifications and planning are the recipe to developing a Passive House or building.

Materials utilized work to capture the sun’s heat within their own airtight foundation and the insulation is continuous throughout the sealed walls, floor and roof. The sum of all these components result in extreme energy efficiency and maximum interior comfort.
