Deep Dive into Net Zero Water at the R.W. Kern Center
Event Description

The New England Living Building Collaborative is presenting a series of webinars on how water management, water efficiency and water and energy nexus concepts can be incorporated into project planning, design, construction and operation.

Deep Dive into Net Zero Water at the R.W. Kern Center will focus on the R.W. Kern Center, at Hampshire College in Hampshire MA as a case study. The R.W. Kern Center received Living Building Challenge (LBC) certification, with a very robust means of addressing the LBC’s water petal needs, without connection to the municipal sewer. The Center features a net-positive water system, meaning that 100% of the building’s water is sourced, processed, and managed on site.
