Commemorate Earth Day with Opportunities for Upgrading Energy Performance of Existing Buildings
The focus of building codes and sustainability programs is often on energy efficiency of new construction, but that ignores the huge amount of energy used in existing buildings. This seminar will highlight new initiatives to upgrade the performance of existing buildings, and opportunities for fenestration and glazing manufacturers. Considerations for commercial, residential, and historic buildings will be discussed.
