Low-rise Building as Climate Action

Low-rise Building as Climate Action

Passive House reduces operational energy from the buildings, but can building materials hinder the total carbon footprint of a building? Chris Magwood, known for his work around embodied carbon, will join us at the October 26 Construction Tech Tuesday to talk about the importance of materials. Chris is currently the director and teacher for the Endeavour Centre in Canada, as well as a designer and consultant with over 15 years of experience. During his presentation, Chris will explore how the materials, strategies, tools, and costs for making real zero carbon buildings focusing on low-rise construction as a carbon reduction tool. 

Chris will share a new report from Builders for Climate Action, an organization he co-founded that focuses on providing tools and research to policymakers and practitioners. Join us to hear from Chris about low-rise buildings as climate action and new reports from Builders for Climate Action.
