Apartment House Institute
The Apartment House Institute at City Tech (AHI) was founded in 1975 by Dick Koral, considered by many to be the father of energy-efficient buildings. AHI was funded by NYSERDA's precursor, the NYS Energy Office. Ahead of its time, with a simple mission to train the people who manage and maintain buildings so that they follow best practices City Tech AHI serves as a model for building smart and building green. City Tech Continuing Studies Center continues to carry on the tradition of Dick Koral's message of "whole building" training. Peter Grech, co founder with Dick Koral of the Superintendents Technical Association, has developed our extensive Building Super's Training program. Our instructors train students in current and future technologies, ensuring that they leave class with the ability to work in a transitioning market, where clean energy and green building techniques are essential skills.
