Passive buildings allow for significantly less energy consumption, while maintaining indoor air quality and unsurpassed comfort. According to PHIUS, “The competition recognized project teams and projects that exemplify best passive building practices and accelerate adoption of passive building in the North American Market.” Zola Windows is flattered to have worked in conjunction with the winners of the competition.
