It is the first certified Passive House in New York City and meets the standards for new construction, surpassing the EnerPHit certification.

BRE : Home Careers using foreign languages A knowledge of one or more foreign languages can be useful in a wide range of careers. For some jobs, such as translating, interpreting and language teaching, language skills are one of the main requirements. For other jobs a combination of languages and other qualifications, knowledge or skills may be needed. Specialist language occupations These include working as a translator, interpreter, language teacher or linguist. Though the terms interpreting/interpretation and translating/translation are often used interchangeably, these professions are different. Translation Translators translate written material from one language to another. To be a translator you need the ability to write and express yourself very well in the target language, usually your native tongue, and a good knowledge of the source language(s), usually foreign languages. Translators make great use of dictionaries, the internet, and other reference materials. Translators are usually paid per word in the source language.
