"By 2030, 900 billion square feet of new and refurbished buildings will be constructed in cities worldwide," according to McDonald.
Belfield Townhomes in Philadelphia were designed to Passive House standards by OnionFlats.

Building solutions to meet both carbon reduction goals and the demand for housing will have to be "radical, affordable, and scalable," according to McDonald, who believes that passive structures can accomplish both objectives. His firm is currently pursuing multiple residential projects in the market-rate and affordable/workforce categories, all of which meet the certification criteria for Passive House-the U.S. version of Passivhaus. One project, Belfield Townhomes, is a set of three and four-bedroom affordable-rate townhomes built for three formerly homeless families in a blighted section of Philadelphia. The buildings were built off site in a modular fashion with solar panels and their own energy recovery system.
"It elevates the standard for affordable housing in this country" and could be a scalable prototype, McDonald said.
The Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency (PHFA) recently added Passive House certification as an incentive to developers when submitting applications to receive low-income housing tax credits. This year, 30 percent of PHFA-financed projects are expected to be built to passive standards, McDonald said.
