BuildingEnergy 15 is now just one month away! Held at the Seaport World Trade Center here in Boston, the conference is organized by members of the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association (NESEA). The three-day event engages building professionals in discussions about sustainable strategies and their successes, as well as their failures. Our very own Andrea Love, Director of Building Science, will be speaking on two different topics: The Arrival of Leed v4 and The All Glass Building. Be sure to click on each session’s title for more information.
The Arrival of LEED v4: Everything You Need to Know to Succeed
LEED v4 is here – you can register your projects in the latest innovative rating system brought to you by the USGBC. How do you define all those new acronyms? How much will performance matter? How much will LCA and health issues matter? How can you and your team navigate the credits to find the optimal path through to a successful LEED v4 project?
The All Glass Building – Is Energy Efficiency Possible?
While glass buildings continue to rise throughout our cities, the question of their sustainability remains. The market is demanding high glazing percentage for the daylight, views, and marketing potential it provides, which can present a considerable hurdle in promoting energy efficiency in modern buildings. During this session, two speakers with varying views will frame the current debate surrounding the all glass building and its place in energy efficient, sustainable design.
