Time:
11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Venue:
Online

This webinar will take place from 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. EST.

This webinar is intended for architects, designers, builders, and raters of new homes. The webinar begins with an overview of building science and the house-as-a-system approach. Participants will apply this knowledge to total-home performance and the features it entails. This webinar will show participants best practices for designing a high-performance home, with a focus on efficiency, comfort, health, durability and environmental awareness. Participants will discover that high-performance homes begin with an enhanced design effort but don’t have to have increased construction costs. Southface will present several EarthCraft projects as case studies.

Participants in the webinar will:

    • Recall basic building science concepts, particularly the house-as-a-system approach
    • Learn ten design concepts to try and implement
    • Appreciate the impact of thoughtful, intelligent design
    • Discover resources for more information and further study
