At the time of construction, The Heights was one of the first multi-unit residential buildings in Vancouver seeking Passive House certification. At six storeys high, this building would be among the largest structures built to the Passive House standard in Canada. This project is estimated to have 90% less heating energy costs than a code-level equivalent. Lessons learned in achieving this level of energy reduction are presented in this case study.
