Shelter From The Storm
Tuesday, Mar 11, 2014
If a power outage occurs during a winter cold spell, buildings with poor envelopes will face freezing temperatures indoors within days. And without power for air conditioning in summer, some homes and apartments will become dangerously hot. Is NYC ready for the next blackout? Discover the findings of Urban Green Council’s study Baby It’s Cold Inside comparing the resiliency of typical construction to high-performance buildings. Join the discussion with NYC officials, builders, and property managers about how to improve buildings to prepare for the future.
