Emerging Green Builder’s (Eco-Sense Presentation)

Greetings EGBs!

The new year is just around the corner and what better way to start it than with a night of EGB? This is a reminder about next week’s meeting.

Gord Baird from Eco-sense is going to give a presentation on the year long research project that the Bairds completed on their cob home. Eco-sense was one of the first buildings to be certified under the Living Building Challenge and has been called ‘the greenest home in North America’. On Thursday you will find out why.

The project involved extensive data collection throughout the home to track energy consumption and how the earthen walls perform compared to conventional construction. This was followed with a rigorous analysis to show how earthen construction vastly outperforms conventional building techniques. Please join us!

The research can be found on the Bairds’ blog:

The presentation will be about 30min long followed by Q&A, and then social time.

Burnside Gorge Community Centre
471 Cecelia Road
Thursday, January 5th, 7-9pm

Refreshments will be provided. Please BYOMug!
