Attendees of this event will get to tour two very different projects: a newly construction net-zero house and a former grist mill, built in 1850, that has been converted into a residence and offices through a phased deep-energy retrofit process.
NESEA hosts more than 30 events each year across the Northeast to bring our community together and showcase the incredible work and expertise of our members. BuildingEnergy ProTours, workshops, peer to peer network gatherings, conference planning meetings and other events curated and inspired by our members occur throughout the year from Pennsylvania to Maine, and complement our annual BuildingEnergy conferences held in Boston and New York City. We hope to see you at a NESEA event soon!
This Pro Tour will bring attendees into the recently completed, net-positive headquarters of SunCommon, a company providing photovoltaic array financing, leasing and installation in Vermont and New York State. Hosted by the project team from Maclay Architects and Energy Balance Inc., this half-day tour of the 15,000 square-foot project will highlight the design process and unique challenges of a commercial developer "built to suit" project while providing insights into the performance data from the building’s first year of occupancy.
Attendees on this Pro Tour will learn how the Zero Net Energy (ZNE) design for this large institutional building developed without increasing costs, despite the cold climate and high-energy needs of the health and science equipment the occupants rely on.
The BuildingEnergy Boston Conference + Trade Show is the region's leading event for professionals and practitioners working to build a more sustainable world. It brings over 2,000 industry leaders and emerging professionals together for three days to learn from and share ideas with each other. This year's event will be held on Thursday and Friday, March 8 and 9, 2018 at the Westin Boston Waterfront.
