Case Study: Challenges and Opportunities in Deep Envelope Retrofitting

Presented by Paul Bertram (Kingspan Insulated Panels).


Please join the DC Building Enclosure Council at Gensler’s Office Downtown for a case study on deep envelope retrofitting, complete with actual performance data following the retrofit. 


This case study of the 500-unit Castle Square Apartments, is one of Boston’s most critical affordable housing resources. A portion of the 1960s property, the 192-unit midrise, is the largest deep energy retrofit ever undertaken in the United States. Predictive modeling demonstrated energy reduction by 72%, with the envelope representing more than 30% of that total.  One year of post project performance data will be presented compared to the predictive energy modeling along with lessons learned from the project.


If you plan to attend, please click here for more information and to pre-register. Registration is also available at the door. Although we are striving to keep our regular monthly programming free, as it has been in the past, we are currently being asked to charge as outlined on the AIA website for events. We are currently working with AIA DC to eliminate this charge for our monthly meetings, and, until then, we hope that you will still be able to join us. We will continue to strive to provide interesting, engaging, and practical programming that also offers AIA CES credit. 


Organized by: BEC-DC
