Système Modulaire

Recommended Posts

Modular Construction will help accelerate construction of affordable housing in the future. 


Note: French is my third language, so please excuse me if some of the text is a bit  awkward - but, below is the description I wrote out to "Bâtiment Passif Québec," which promotes Passive House Standard in Quebec - this project is also a Passive House project.


Nous sommes fiers d'annoncer que nous a reçu l’autorisation de La Ville de New York pour les Terrasses Bethany, un projet de logements sociaux pour aînés situé dans le quartier Flatbush à l'est de Brooklyn.

Les Terrases Bethany compteront un total de 58 appartements qui seront 100% électrifiés (VRF systems, heat pump hot water) avec des espaces communs intérieurs, extérieurs ainsi qu'un espace jardin. De plus, le projet propose un système de panneaux solaires de 140 KW - donc, c'est un project Net-Zero aussi. 

Le projet sera certifié #PHIUS+ 2018 (Passive House.) C'est un projet unique dans son genre puisqu'il utilise un système modulaire afin de réduire les coûts et le temps de construction.



Yesterday - we had given a talk on affordable Passive house buildings - we compared two of our buildings, traditional block and plank build vs. Modular. Here is the presentation: 




Additional information on Bethany Senior: 

In addition to the project being net-zero energy demand, and certified to PHIUS+ 2018 standard, we also want to re-define affordable housing by building a home that not only is energy efficient, and have superior indoor air quality - but also one that allows families to thrive. So, a key concept was providing a lot of garden spaces as well as common spaces. Feel free to reach out if you want to discuss more about Passive House or Modular project.
