Lecture summary

Rehabilitating and renovating existing buildings for very different clients - a family and a speculative residential developer - required rethinking preconceived notions of sustainability. Through a collaborative design and construction administration process and close attention to detailing the thermal envelope, cost-effective choices brought energy high-performance into the realm of possibility for the average homeowner or developer.
A brief discussion of the merits of various green building standards such as Energy Star and LEED for Homes will also be included.
A question and answer session and discussion will follow the lecture.
