187: Saving Buildings Is Cheap–Prefab Retrofits

5/21/2024
In this episode of the Passive House Podcast co-host Zack Semke speaks with Tim McDonald of Onion Flats Architecture on the heels of Tim's involvement in the Reimagine Building PREFAB conference. Tim discusses his firm's current portfolio of passive deep energy retrofit projects and shares his growing realization that we need to fundamentally rethink our understanding of the economics of retrofits.
