Energy-efficient home design can utilize many different green design practices. The right approach is different for every client. At The Turett Collaborative, the strategy used most frequently is superinsulation, where heat and cooling losses are reduced dramatically by using much higher levels of insulation and airtightness than in conventional building construction. This method can be used for any type of structure in any climate, and can reduce heating and cooling costs by up to 75% vs. conventional construction.
Some super-insulated projects by The Turett Collaborative include:
- 77th Street Townhouse
- Charles Street Townhouse (67 Charles)
- West 11th Townhouse (Under Construction)
