Eastern Exterior Wall Systems provide Prefab Façade for World’s Tallest Passive House Project

  • City, State: Roosevelt Island, NY
  • Architect: Handel Architects
  • Finished Cladding Material: Aluminum Composite Material (ACM) and Fiber Cement
  • System Type: Barrier System to meet Passive House Requirements

Description: Working on the “World’s Tallest Passive House Project” is an honor in itself. This was an enormous challenge, one that EEWS met head-on with great enthusiasm. Collaborating with the architect, wall consultant, and Passive House consultant, EEWS was able to develop the details and construction methods necessary to achieve such a high-performance prefabricated wall system. Covering nearly 150,000 sf, the ACM mega-panels had to be constructed to very precise specifications in order to meet the extreme requirements of high-rise Passive House construction.
