Join NESEA for this Pro Tour featuring a wing of a Western-New York high school that has been retrofitted to save energy while better serving the needs of the clients. This event will be hosted by Ashley McGraw Architects and will cover all aspects of the retrofit, including design, materials selection, envelope, and mechanicals.
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 Pro Tours, workshops, peer to peer network gatherings, conference planning meetings and other events curated and inspired by our members occur throughout the year throughout our territory, and complement our annual BuildingEnergy conferences held in Boston and New York City. We hope to see you at a NESEA event soon!
