Event Description

Join us as we discuss how to incorporate the 5 pillars of green building into any project type. Gain more knowledge of what's new in the residential sector and where we are headed regarding home health, comfort, reducing utility bills, and being a better steward of our environment.

Who is this for?

Architects, designers, builders, owners, raters, inspectors, realtors, HVAC, appraisers, govt or utility program developers, students, and types in the building trades. Everyone involved in a home project must understand their role and how they fit in with other professions and roles!

From home-improvement projects all the way to new construction and everything in between, whether single-family, multi-family, or high-rise residential buildings, whatever types of projects you are involved in, is being discussed.
