Smart Building Workshop Opportunities in Lowell and Elsewhere

For professionals looking to learn about “smart building”,  the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources Presents some “Smart Building Workshops” – in April and May across the Commonwealth. Join them on April 4th in Lowell at the Mayor’s Reception Room in City Hall, 375 Merrimack Street.

Smart Building: High Performance Homes

      …why do buildings still cost so much to heat and cool?         …why are comfort and indoor air quality complaints so common?         …why do so many buildings fail?
In this workshop you will learn how to build homes that are …

  • Durable
  • Healthy
  • Comfortable
  • Energy efficient
  • Less costly to operate
  • Compliant with base and stretch energy codes

…and we will discuss how to cost effectively go beyond codes.

The Smarter Building Workshop describes smart building techniques from the ground up, from foundation to roof, using case studies, exercises, and discussion to show you proven methods that have enabled builders and designers to build cost effective high performance homes.
