Through innovations in design and construction, we can create high-performing buildings using better materials that result in low-energy and low-carbon buildings. In this workshop series, architect Steve Baczek will present on various innovations he’s used in assemblies for high performance buildings and then we will examine the energy use and embodied carbon of the materials used and compare them to a more traditional building, demonstrating the effectiveness of these assemblies for creating low-carbon buildings.
Participants will learn how these assemblies are designed and constructed, what the benefits and challenges to them are, and how to consider the embodied energy of the materials being used in construction.
A small amount of single-sessions spots are available here while they last.
