BCT Lecture: Making Net Zero Homes & Energy Retrofits Affordable, Healthy, and Low in Embodied Carbon @ UMass Olver Design Building, Room 170

Spring 2019 BCT Lecture Series

Speaker: Kent Hicks, Principal, Kent Hicks Construction

Location: 170 Olver Design Building

To make a substantial and faster impact on reducing carbon emissions in our built environment, we need to remove the cost barriers of energy efficiency in new homes and of energy retrofitting our massive existing housing stock. Key to this strategy is the methodology of designing and building assemblies and systems that reduce building materials and increase construction efficiency while using healthy and low embodied carbon resources.

For twenty years, Mr. Hicks, one of the first Passive House Consultants in the country, has been committed to mitigating climate change and incorporating best practices in building science while developing innovative approaches to affordable, healthy efficiency.
