Join NESEA for a Pro Tour featuring two very different projects: a new-construction, 8-unit ZNE office building and a single-family DER renovated for energy efficiency and storm resiliency. Attendees will hear from the teams behind both projects at this event co-hosted by Alfandre Architecture and Integral Building + Design.
For a blast back to the past, check out the events and Pro Tours we've hosted throughout the Northeast highlighting the incredible work of NESEA members.
This Pro Tour will showcase an 101-unit, mid-rise, purpose-built to expand the designated-affordable housing units in the Far Rockaways area of southern Queens in New York City. This project was built to Passive House standards with special attention to resiliency features for extreme weather events.
Attendees of this Pro Tour will learn how this land was transformed from the site of a single-family condemned house to the site of 4 combustion-free, net-zero duplex homes. The team behind this infill project will detail the history and lessons learned, offering this as an example for municipalities looking for ways to infill for community, housing, and tax support without extending infrastructure.
Join NESEA for the first event of the 2018 BuildingEnergy Pro Tour Series, featuring a net-zero-ready home on the Vermont/New Hampshire border. This production-built home is situated in a small development of net-zero-ready houses, all with a focus on affordability and universal design principles.
Attendees on this Pro Tour learned how the Zero Net Energy (ZNE) design for this large institutional building was developed without increasing costs, despite the cold climate and high-energy needs of the health and science equipment the occupants rely on.
This Pro Tour brought attendees into the recently completed, net-positive headquarters of SunCommon, a company providing photovoltaic array financing, leasing, and installation in Vermont and New York State. Hosted by the project team from Maclay Architects and Energy Balance Inc., this half-day tour of the 15,000 square-foot project highlighted the design process and unique challenges of a commercial developer "built to suit" project while providing insights into the performance data from the building’s first year of occupancy.
Attendees of this event were able to tour two very different projects: a newly construction net-zero house and a former grist mill, built in 1850, that has been converted into a residence and offices through a phased deep-energy retrofit process.
This Pro Tour will feature Corona Senior Residence, an 8-story building which is poised to become the first senior housing development in New York built to Passive House International Standards.
The BuildingEnergy NYC Conference + Trade Show is NYC's fastest-growing event for professionals and practitioners working to build a more sustainable world. It brings more than 600 industry leaders and emerging professionals together to learn from and network with each other. This year's event, chaired by Eric Davis of Con Edison and Ryan Cassidy of RBSCC, will be held on Thursday, October 12, 2017 at the TKP New York Conference Center.
The Emerging Professionals Career Forum is a free, interactive event providing a venue for students and emerging professionals to gain practical strategies for building professional networks, including resources for finding jobs and internships. Attendees will have a chance to hone their networking skills and exchange advice while they meet one another and the NESEA Board of Directors in small discussion groups.
