Event Details

The Living Building Challenge has been described as "...the most advanced measurement of sustainability in the built environment possible today."  

Gaddy House, about to begin construction, is seeking a “triple crown” of Gaddy Housesustainability. This 2,000 square foot house in Clarksville, Maryland, is seeking a LEED Homes Platinum rating under the LEED v4 Pilot, a Passive House certification and a Living Building Challenge certification. In addition to the challenges inherent in achieving each of the certifications, some of the demands of each of the systems conflict with the requirements of others.

Gaddy House

This presentation will focus on the three rating systems and how each system approaches the issues of sustainability. Lessons can be expanded to address similar project goals for larger buildings. The Owner, the architect and consultants representing all three certifications will be present.
