Event Details

We invite Brick & Wonder members, their teams, and industry guests to join us for this public panel, in partnership with Passive House Accelerator, which will explore current opportunities and challenges in Facade Renovation and Retrofits, with a focus on NYC. 

Local Law 97 will increasingly levy fines on developers and owners who are not retrofitting older buildings to make them more energy efficient, but the capital expenditures needed to complete these complex projects are vast, and the path to a return on these investments is not always clear. 

Hosted at Brickworks New York Design Studio, we’ll hear from an interdisciplinary panel bringing financial, municipal, owner, and designer perspectives to bear on a thorny issue at the center of NYC's built environment future. 

To achieve the state's goal of carbon-neutral building stock by 2050, the lion's share of the work falls on 85% of that building stock which is already built today, bringing legacy buildings into the twenty-first century.
