Sustainable Development Goals: A New Business Opportunity for the Green Built EnvironmentIn September 2015 the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development were adopted by 193 world leaders. These new Global Goals universally apply to all, and the built environment will play a significant role in meeting these targets. Green buildings and sustainable cities are a true catalyst for solving some of the world’s most pressing challenges, and it is for this reason that the involvement from the built environment is so crucial. Public and private building investors are increasingly setting requirements for sustainable buildings, and companies who adopt the SDGs into their business strategies and building designs will have a competitive advantage and make their company and building projects stand out. This interactive workshop will explain how the built environment sector can benefit from and translate the SDGs into new business opportunities. We provide insight into international trends, looking at how building standards such as the Passive House Standard relate to the SDGs and what competitive advantages the SDGs open up for. The presenters will share inspiring cases of how sustainable construction - both new design and retrofit projects - contribute to the SDGs and show how sustainability strategies can be communicated through the SDGs.  This workshop is sponsored by Danish Energy Management: 10/03/2018 - 2:00pm10/03/2018 - 5:00pmJack Dinning, Yetsuh Frank, Heather Louise Madsen, Kirsten Mariager, Dylan Martello, Bill O'BrienMadisonhttps://nesea.org/node/5442128785JohnDinningdinning.jack@gmail.comParsons School of Design at The New SchoolSenior Design ResearcherJack Dinning is a Senior Design Researcher at the Healthy Materials Lab at Parsons School of Design; the Director of the Donghia Healthier Materials Library at Parsons; and the Director of Biofabrication at GrowSquares.

Wonderwall: Deconstructing Emerging Trends in Building Enclosure TechnologyAttend this interactive workshop to experience industry experts constructing an energy-efficient wall live on stage. This true show-and-tell session explores evolving trends in building enclosure technology with interventions from engineers, insulation experts and façade manufactures. While erecting the enclosure, the panelists will present and discuss advantages and challenges of emerging technology within air barrier systems, rain screen cladding, energy efficient building design and exterior grade phenolic. Between processes, participants will join the experts on the stage in order to examine the wall-section and enhance their understanding of how these integrated systems work.

Designing and Building High-Performance BusinessesNESEA has long been a community in which practitioners help each other design and construct better buildings by sharing experiences of what worked and — often even more important — what didn’t work. NESEA’s BuildingEnergy Bottom Lines program extends that practice to designing and building better businesses. This workshop, guided by Bottom Lines facilitators, will be an open discussion of current hot business topics: succession planning and exit strategies, carbon impact assessments, attracting and retaining top talent, making the transition from firefighting to fire prevention in your management practices, and other questions you bring. Please join us and get a sense of all that you can learn from your peers — and what they can learn from you in return. By participating in this workshop you’ll be able to get a taste of the Bottom Lines experience. Bottom Lines currently encompasses 50 companies organized into 5 groups, collectively representing hundreds of people and over $75 million in revenues and all eager to improve their triple bottom lines (people, planet, profits). Groups meet twice a year for two days for intense peer-to-peer learning and coaching, and take advantage of other opportunities during the year, such as on-line forums and an annual gathering, to continue the peer-to-peer exchanges.

She first attended NESEA in 1994, and formed Trillium Architects in 2004 with the sole purpose of producing small, beautiful, green houses. Elizabeth grew up in the industry, has a five year professional degree in architecture from Rensselaer, and a master’s degree in Advanced Architectural Design from Columbia University. She has spent time working in large architecture firms in Los Angeles, CT and NYC, designing and managing projects from high-end residential, to multi-family, to high profile institutional buildings. Living off the grid in Colorado in the early 90’s, she learned a very grass roots approach to making shelter and incorporating local and environmentally sound products and technologies into buildings that occupants could fabricate themselves. While there she designed and physically built many ‘alternative’ structures (Straw bale, rammed earth, adobe, pumice, earth ships, passive solar, etc). This hands-on experience revealed the many possibilities of alternative construction methods, however it also revealed many limitations for their incorporation in the technologically evolving world of the mainstream American building industry. In the 1990s, Elizabeth’s began to focus her practice on bringing green, energy efficient buildings to more mainstream clients in the northeast. Over the years, Elizabeth and Trillium Architects have refined their approach to getting a green home built. In doing so they have also learned how to prioritize and meet clients expectations for creating a home that is energy efficient but is also sophisticated, beautiful, practical and affordable. Trillium believes one can construct peace and joy, as well as comfort and efficiency.
