What is Energy Use Intensity, and why does it matter?
Energy Use Intensity, or EUI, is comparable to a building's "gas mileage." The metric indicates the energy use of a building per square foot, so it can be easily compared to other buildings. The lower the EUI, the more energy efficient the building is. Our building metrics aim for an EUI in the range of 5-25 kBTU/sf-yr, so that with the addition of renewable energy sources, the building can be Net Zero.

As the technology and techniques of modern building proliferate worldwide, we're seeing an erosion in vernacular building types. These building types celebrate the uniqueness of their place, and are often the result of hundreds or thousands of years of learned techniques that respond to unique climate conditions and locally available materials.
