Virtual Pro Tour: 1890s Farmhouse to Super Insulated Commercial Space
Event Description

Join NESEA for this interactive event, hosted by Garland Mill, featuring a deep dive into the conversion of a 1890s farmhouse that has been transformed into a super insulated building providing space for arts and education nonprofits in Littleton, NH. Just like an in-person Pro Tour, this event will mix presentation with small group conversation, giving participants the chance to meet project team members and one another. 

About the Project

Garland Mill was the developer, designer and construction manager of the project. They turned a 130-year-old wood framed building into a commercial building providing space for arts and education nonprofits. Because this building is located in the cold climate of Littleton, NH, special care was given to the envelope, including creating an R-50 roof, and the installation of triple pane windows. This 9000 square foot building now includes a 30 kilowatt array, sub metering with a proprietary app to allow the building owner to manage peak loads, and multi-split heat pumps that allow tenants to manage energy use remotely. During this event, participants will learn about this building’s transformation, including details on construction, carpentry, mechanicals, and renewable energy. 

About the Event

Through a mix of presentation, video, and small group breakout rooms, we’re using a format that preserves the interactive, behind-the-scenes vibe that has made NESEA’s Pro Tours so popular.

Unlike a traditional webinar, attendees will come with their mics and cameras on: as a participant in this event, you’ll be able to see and hear other attendees, ask content experts questions directly, and meet new people in the NESEA community.
