Verdant is the 2023 Affordable Housing Winner of the Phius Design Competition, recognizing the successful efforts of the entire project team in achieving this high performance project.

Precipitate was hired by the City of Saint Paul to serve as the Certified Passive House Consultant for Verdant (formerly known as West Side Flats IIIB), 82 units of affordable housing. The project is PHIUS+ 2018 certified and welcomed residents in Fall 2022. Precipitate stepped into the project during the Construction Documentation stage, working with Kaas Wilson Architects to gather project information, lead in-person workshops, conduct energy models, and coordinate submission and required revisions with the PHIUS rating organization. We supported developer Sherman Associates in navigating the construction and final certification process, including modeling change requests.
