Advanced Buildings focuses on the development and demonstration of high-performance (significantly above commercial practice) single and attached residential buildings. The program seeks to discover solutions that will increase construction productivity while delivering high performance and increase adoptability. It will transfer advances in building science and energy conversion systems into commercial practice by New York’s residential construction industry.
The program will support two broad paths: discrete components and integrated whole buildings. The development and demonstration of discrete components will focus on advanced building envelope technologies, on-site energy conversion, energy controls and thermal storage. The integrated whole-building component will work with low-volume and production developers to produce exemplary complete buildings that incorporate the advanced features enabling high-performance. Solicitations, suitable for the building industry, including contractors, designers, suppliers, educators and associations will be offered periodically, to both develop and demonstrate all aspects of this program.
