Episode 31: LIVE Recording of Existing Buildings Keynote at
US Green Building Council’s GreenCon 2018
We've been told we have the faces for podcasting, but apparently the U.S. Green Building Council thinks we have the faces for speeches too. USGBC invited us to its annual GreenCon event to give a keynote speech on existing buildings, and here for your listening pleasure is a live recording of our talk. It's certainly a timely topic - in 2015, about 40% of total U.S. energy consumption was consumed in residential and commercial buildings alone! Have a listen and forever change the way you see existing buildings. Plus, we give away not one but *four* party facts! The holidays indeed came early.
What you'll learn:
- How existing buildings reflect a variety of uses over time, as well as different policies and laws
- About the economic/real estate decisions behind how buildings are made
- New approaches to make the materials and conditions inside of existing buildings as sustainable and healthy as possible
- The framework for projecting how existing buildings will be used in the future
