The primary focus of good design and construction needs be the comfort and health of people living in and occupying the buildings.
During our first Hard Hat Happy Hour, we will give a short presentation on the topics of thermal comfort, the absence of mold and condensation, and indoor air quality.
Examples from both new constructions and retrofits of existing buildings will be shown. We'll also briefly go over different performance standards available, such as Net Zero and Passive House.
Who may find this interesting? home owners, architects, designers, energy consultants, builders, real estate agents, town council representatives, manufacturers and suppliers of components (insulation, membranes, windows, mechanical ventilation), builders, college students of architecture and engineering.
We'll try to start the presentation around 5:30pm, and keep it to about 30 minutes with time for Q&A and discussion afterwards.
