Weatherization and Benchmarking
Wednesday, May 15, 2013
As awareness of sustainable building is growing many are focusing on the more conspicuous elements that can be involved: solar panels, wind turbines, green roofs…the list goes on. Despite their utility in creating interest, any sustainability consultant worth his salt will tell you that none of these should even be considered until you’ve tightened your building’s shell or your just throwing good money after bad.
Once your building is weatherized it’s important to monitor its performance so you can see the benefits involved and make sure they last. These two practices, benchmarking and weatherization, are the topic of May forum and we’ll be looking at them in the form of data derived from Local Law 84, case studies, and a broad overview of the benefits of these practices.
