Energy Efficiency Strategies for High Performing Buildings

Heart of a Building, an exciting new technical documentary series, shares the stories and the tactics of the people who design, finance, and construct the buildings of tomorrow, today. Let us inspire you with the heart-centered reasons to build with the earth, and energy, in mind.

You don’t have to be satisfied with building to energy code minimums. Join us for our first course in the series and dig into the project’s technical strategies. In Energy Efficiency Strategies for High Performing Buildings, we’ll share energy efficient building envelope systems, R-values, U-values, types of heat transfer, insulation, and ground source heat pump systems. You’ll see how each of these separate components work together as the building operates as a system. We’ll share three exemplary buildings in the real world to show how these concepts work in practice.
