Description


Please join us for a free training taking us into a deeper dive of Zero Energy Homes and newly released Rhode Island stretch codes.

This will be followed by a tour of a recently renovated and expanded home designed to Zero Energy standards by Donald Powers of Union Studio Architects and featured on This Old House!

Check out the revolutionary technology from Aerobarrier that was employed at the Jamestown home renovation. This breakthrough approach tackles air leaks from the inside out to help turn the 100-year-old bungalow into an energy conscious net-zero home!

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

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.
