As we move into the 21st Century and sustainable design becomes more ingrained in the culture of our urban landscape and sustainability research has emerged as a growing industry.
Join us for a presentation and panel discussion on research, processes and methodology from new leaders in this burgeoning field. They focus their research on the built environment and producing studies at the forefront of the industry, thereby significantly shaping building design and construction for a new era.
Sponsors: Urban Green Council & The Mowhawk Group
Speakers: Hannah Bronfman, YR&G, will examine the processes, goals and social impacts of post occupancy evaluations in new buildings for criteria that range from energy performance to thermal comfort; Jason Vollen. CASE, will discuss his involvement in technologies including photovoltaic systems that efficiently produce electricity and heat for domestic hot water; building integrated phytoremediation systems that clean airborne contaminants associated with poor indoor air quality; high performance masonry made from less energy intensive and low-impact materials; and dynamic glazing that meets the lighting, thermal and informational requirements of occupied spaces; and Howard Brown, co-founder of dMASS, will discuss ongoing research in resource efficient building techniques, building components and cutting-edge innovations in the built environment.
