Built for energy efficiency
At ReArch, we know the importance of achieving an ultra-tight building envelope as a simple means to reduce annual energy consumption and to construct a resilient low-maintenance building.
Airtightness ratings for ReArch projects
Airtightness Scale – We document each of our projects to ensure that they are achieving a high-performance building or better. The scale shows the air infiltration rate in CFM/sf of surface area at 50 pascals. A 0.05 rating is considered passive house standard, 0.15 is ultra-tight, and 0.25 is high-performance.
Office Sustainability Initiatives:
- K cup recycling
- No single-use plastic
- Free personal composting
- All rechargeable batteries
- 100% recycled paper on all materials
- Green Up Day Vermont-23 bags of trash collected
The Wentworth Housing projects blower door test was tied for first out of all the buildings we have tested in New England for air tightness, with an air infiltration rate of 0.0375 CFM50/sf.
