The Tianjin Residential High-Rise Passive House project has been executed in a period of more than four years where the owner, LDI, and energy consultants (Soft-grid (Shanghai) for the architectural design and energydesign (Shanghai) for HVAC and MEP design) have contributed towards the success of implementing the advanced German Passive House technology in China locally.
The project has set a significant role for the development of Passive House in China and it shows for sure the practice how to design and construct passive high – rise residential building in China. Meanwhile, the successful implementation provides a best practice for the future building developments in this region to replicate and expand.
