PASSIVE HOUSE REACHES NEW HEIGHTS
Monad Granville Building
The Monad Granville Building is a rental, mixed-use nine-storey development in an infill lot in Vancouver’s downtown and is set to be the first prefabricated Passive House mass timber residential midrise in the city.
Floor cassette panels and facade panels will be made using cross-laminated timber (CLT) and laminated veneer lumber (LVL), while columns will be constructed with glue-laminated timber (glulam).
The project serves as a model for prefabricated mass timber construction and Passive House design standards that could be replicated in future urban housing. The building will be designed to achieve net-zero energy readiness with a path towards carbon neutrality.
