Description

Please join us for a free training taking us into a deeper dive of Zero Energy Homes (ZEH), Rhode Island stretch codes, Mechanical Operations Training and Tour of Viessmann.

Continuing Education hours will be available for AIA, Engineering RCEP and Building Officials

Session #1 Residential Zero Energy Homes (ZEH) & Stretch Codes - We will explore basic design considerations required to achieve low-load homes. The presentation will also identify construction techniques and best practices that are critical to achieve high-performance buildings, and provide an understanding of the certification process and the role of consultants, standards, and verification. Finally, the provisions of the newly introduced voluntary Rhode Island Residential Stretch Code will be summarized.

This will be followed by a tour of Viessmann's Residential and Commercial Boiler Room training labs, and rooftop solar array.

A complimentary lunch will then be provided as we segue into a lunch and learn workshop
