Event description

Description

Geared towards: Industry professionals

An exemplary building is one that is designed to be Zero Net Carbon by 2030. More than that, it’s a building that is highly environmentally efficient, and offers long-term life cycle cost benefits and quality of life benefits for both affordable housing developers and residents as well as for the community at large. The ultra-efficient affordable housing that is the result of exemplary building standards would significantly reduce energy, water consumption, and storm water runoff, which leads to cost saving on utilities and better stewardship of our environment. This happens first through state-of-the-art building design strategies and efficiency measures, then through on-site renewable energy generation and water capture.

Guest Speaker: Marty Kooistra, Housing Development Consortium of Seattle
