In Maine, A Passivhaus School Takes Shape

by Scott Gibson, GreenBuildingAdvisor.com - For now, you'll have to use your imagination to envision a new school on the wooded site a few miles north of Portland, Maine. There are only concrete stem walls outlining the shape of the building, and earth-moving equipment up in back shaping what will eventually become recreation fields.

But by next June, visitors should be able to see the new Friends School of Portland. The 15,000-square-foot building will be one of only a few Passivhaus school buildings in the country, and the largest Passivhaus structure in Maine. Architects also plan on making it a net-zero energy building.
