Environmental Design and Cold Climate Construction in North America

Matthew O’Malia is an environmental design architect. Join him as he explores the future of passive house building in North America.

Buildings in the United States use more energy than any other sector of the economy, and in cold climates, the energy used for space heating represents three quarters of total building energy consumption.

Building to the Passive House standard is the equivalent of a car that could drive 200 miles per gallon. Energy conservation at this level, when implemented on a large scale, could have a positive effect on the economy and the environment.

Matthew O’Malia is an environmental design architect. He founded GO Logic with Alan Gibson, an award winning design-build firm focused on building to the Passive House standard. Join him as he explores the future of passive house building in North America.

This event is free and open to the public.
