With social distancing pushing people to spend most of their days and nights in their home, we feel it is time to revisit the topic of green construction, especially as we look around us and realize that green buildings are still the exception and not the rule.
In this free webinar, we will discuss the benefits and challenges of returning construction back to nature, and whether technology can help.
We will talk with two OAA registered architects that focused their practice on bringing healthier living environments to their clients.
We will discuss the following:
- WHY do we need to develop low-energy houses and re-examine our building material;
- WHAT are the cost implications for such construction;
- WHAT are the tools that they use to:
- – Develop their design efficiently and improve communication with their clients;
- – Produce an Energy Evaluation constantly through the early phases of design different and help clients make decisions based on tangible data.
This is a discussion and questions will be welcome.
