Event Description

BuildingEnergy Pro Tours are accredited, half-day tours of high performance buildings all over the Northeast. These events are led by members of the project teams behind them, concluding with a reception and workshop or Q&A session. Pro Tours are an opportunity for sustainable building professionals to get to see projects in progress with their own eyes, share their knowledge and learn from their colleagues.

Pro Tours are always held on a Friday, from 1-5 PM. The cost to attend a Pro Tour is $25 for NESEA members, and $35 for non-members, and proceeds support NESEA programming.
