Building Tour: The Distillery North

January 31 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

In South Boston, there is an old rum distillery retro-fitted to be a Passive House.  Join USGBC MA for a behind the scenes presentation about the architectural features of the space, as well as a tour of the location.

Features include:
  • No drafts, temperature gradients, or excessive dryness and humidity
  • Uses 95% less energy HVAC compared to a building in its class.
  • Advanced air filtration that removes hazardous particulates from city air
  • Extra insulation and triple-paned, openable windows, making it quieter than other buildings.
  • Conveniently located and easily accessible
  • Resident parking, interior and outside lots 360 degree city views from the roof
  • High-end finishes and high ceilings
  • In-unit washer and dryer
  • Roof access with grow beds
The challenge of the project was how to make PH construction– which would meet certification, with 90 – 95% reduction in thermal energy requirements. Overcoming this problem involved innovative design, sourcing, construction methods, and sequencing, as well as education of the General Contractor and strict oversight.
