About

This webcast will feature industry experts who will define the importance of, and why we should strive for, net zero in the built environment. Viewers will be able to identify behaviors that create more effective ownership, design and construction teams, and will recognize the value of a collaborative process in building design and the impact on costs. With a strong emphasis on real-world applications, the program will also discuss the primary technical and financial challenges in achieving net zero buildings, and where this design approach can best be applied.
