RetrofitNY Design Workshops

In preparation for the release of an upcoming request for proposal (RFP) to develop high-performance retrofit solutions for existing affordable multifamily buildings, the RetrofitNY team held two design workshops in Syracuse and New York City.  

Experts and thought leaders in the housing and design-build industry—including affordable-housing building owners and developers, architects, engineers, and manufacturers—attended the sessions to learn how they could contribute to the development of energy-efficient, comfortable, and healthier multifamily buildings in New York State.

These workshops included brief presentations on the RetrofitNY program, a discussion and Q&A panel with industry experts, and an opportunity to provide feedback, ideas, and solutions to shape our upcoming RFP. 

If you were unable to attend one of our workshops and/or would like to learn more about RetrofitNY and our upcoming RFP opportunity, we encourage you to review presentations from the Syracuse [PDF] and New York City [PDF] sessions or the recorded videoLink opens in new window - close new window to return to this page. of the session in Syracuse.
