Net Zero Energy Buildings have reached a tipping point. The economic limitations that restricted their success in the past have changed drastically and the technologies needed to achieve Net Zero Energy are now readily available. This session will begin by taking a look at the Living Building Challenge, particularly the intricacies of the Energy Petal, to teach participants what is involved with achieving a Net Zero Energy project and what it means to become Net Positive. The session will showcase the latest Net Positive Energy Building projects, uncover the strategies and technologies used and the policies and programs in place that are accelerating the uptake of Net Zero and Net Positive Energy Buildings and Communities. Finally, the session will look to the future and uncover the trends emerging in Net Zero Energy, including the push to Net Positive Energy, and discuss how each participant can take the lessons learned into their own practice.

This workshop is pre-approved for 4 CE's with AIA, GBCI and LFA.

The Living Building Challenge Water Petal is intended to herald in a new age of design, where water is treated as the precious resource that it is, and nothing is left to waste. This workshop will take a look at the components of the Living Building Challenge, with a deep focus on the requirements of the Water Petal. Participants will develop an understanding of why water is such a critical issue in the built environment and the positive impact professionals can have through conservation, reuse, and on-site capture and treatment. Participants will walk step by step through the issues, considerations, and strategies for creating a closed loop water system on-site. They will see examples of how Net Positive Water has been achieved across of a diversity of building types and scales. This workshop will also include a discussion of issues and solutions related to water policy and what is needed next to make it easier for project teams and policy makers alike to support integrated water management. 

This workshop is pre-approved for 4 CE's with AIA, GBCI and LFA.

Although the Living Future 2016 tour of Heron Hall has sold out, there is still a chance to check out this unique site. Our partner Sirewall is hosting two rammed earth workshops following the Living Future unConference that are complimentary to this tour. Sign up if you want a deeper understanding of the rammed earth systems being used in the house and how they can be used on other projects. This is a unique opportunity to hear the founder of the Living Building Challenge discuss his philosophy in action.

Structural Insulated Rammed Earth Construction Workshop
Sat, May 14th - Sun, May 15th: 2 Day Practicum ($500)
-OR-
Mon, May 16th - Fri, May 20th: 5 Day Practicum ($1,000)

Over the course of our workshops, participants will gain an understanding of Rammed Earth Construction and the many benefits of this versatile building method:

  • Identify the key aspects of designing and engineering with structural insulated rammed earth.
  • Gain insight on how rammed earth can be built in a range of climates.
  • Understand soil types and blends required to achieve optimal compressive strength.
