This NESEA Pro Tour featured an affordable housing community built for PHIUS certification. This community, designed by hosting company Maclay Architects, was built to meet the needs of a non-profit housing developer wanting durable, healthy, and attractive housing on a limited budget. Attendees on this tour learned how the project team met these goals without sacrificing energy efficiency. The funding agency prioritizes funding to Net Zero Energy and Passive House Projects.
