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.

This year, 30 percent of PHFA-financed projects are expected to be built to passive standards, McDonald said.
