NearZero Program Breakfast: Overcoming Barriers + Advancing Solutions
November 19 @ 7:00 am - 9:30 am
A critical mass of builders and designers are now building to the highest levels of the Step Code of Passive House, many of which have completed or are working on multiple projects. This workshop will bring together those early adopters to share their experience with the intent of identifying barriers and common solutions so that ZEBx can work with its partners to advance the industry to facilitate the more rapid adoption and cost-effectiveness of these projects.
This is a private event for participants of the NearZero program. Working on a Step 5 or Passive House project, but not a participant of the NearZero program?
