Deep Green: Peckham Architecture’s Green Building Documentary
DEEP GREEN: Our Full-Length Green Building Documentary
Peckham Architecture is proud to share our full-length green building documentary, Deep Green, for the first time on our website and blog. This 30-minute film shares the green building materials and sustainable design techniques used in our LEED Platinum home headquarters in Columbia, Missouri. Deep Green captures the construction process documented in our 11-part Green Building Series, which can also be viewed as individual episodes.
This project is Missouri’s first Passive House Institute US (PHIUS) Certified building. Our fully accessible home is also net-positive, which means that it produces more electricity than it consumes. We achieved this level of energy efficiency using green building features including solar panels, super insulation, LED lights, ERV (energy recovery ventilation), a tankless water heater and Energy Star appliances.
Peckham Architecture provides deep green design services for commercial and residential projects of all sizes, including new construction and renovation. Grounded in our belief that green building is for everyone, we creatively work within your budget and accommodate our clients’ diverse needs and walks of life.
We offer prospective clients a FREE initial meeting of up to one hour.

Green Building Episode 11: How to Install Solar Panels on a Standing Seam Metal Roof
This short film is the final episode in Peckham Architecture’s 11-part documentary series on how to construct a green building for energy efficiency and reduced carbon footprint. This episode shows the completion of Peckham Architecture’s LEED Certified home headquarters and the installation of solar panels on our standing seam metal roof.
Thanks to our photovoltaic system, super insulation, LED lighting, ERV (energy recovery ventilation), an instant hot water heater and Energy Star appliances, this green building is net-positive, which means it produces more energy than it consumes. During May 2016—our first month of occupancy and the warmest May on record—our building produced so much electricity that we received a $179 credit on our bill.

Green Building Episode 7: How our Passive House Aced the Blower Door Test
This short film is Episode 7 of Peckham Architecture’s 11-part documentary series on how to construct a green building for energy efficiency and a lower carbon footprint. This episode shows the phenomenal results our passive house achieved in a blower door test, one part of an energy audit to assess energy efficiency. Even with one exterior door standing open, our eco house is the most airtight building in the city of Columbia, Missouri—and possibly in the country.
Peckham Architecture’s LEED Platinum home headquarters is Missouri’s first Passive House Institute US (PHIUS) Certified building. We used structural insulated panels, recycled blown in insulation for walls and ceilings and liquid house wrap to make our eco house airtight. These green building materials work together with solar panels, LED lights, HRV (heat recovery ventilation), a tankless water heater and Energy Star appliances to make our passive house net-positive, which means that it produces more electricity than it consumes.
