Workshops & Tours

Check out our October 27 program of workshops and tours.

The Getting to Zero Forum has collaborated with partners to curate a set of workshops and tours that will provide an in-depth view of the developments in the zero energy, zero carbon market. Separate registration is required for these high-value educational experiences. New workshop and tour opportunities will be added soon!


Getting to Zero with Passive House Workshop (3 AIA LU|HSW CEUs pending)

Passive building highlights the efficiency-first path to a net-zero energy building. The PHIUS+ standard provides cost-optimized efficiency targets, guiding the designer to the sweet spot between energy conservation versus generation, on the path to zero. Attendees will learn the key performance criteria for PHIUS+ 2018 Certification, understand the development of these targets, and take away the design methodology to achieve this. The session will also cover the capabilities of WUFI Passive, the energy modeling tool used to guide the design and verify compliance with PHIUS+ performance targets.

Time: 1:00-4:00 pm
Cost: $195

Solutions Sets for Tall Buildings Workshop (4 AIA LU|HSW CEUs pending)

Tall buildings present unique challenges to carbon neutral performance goals especially in existing buildings. This workshop dives into solution sets developed and tested by four real estate portfolio owners of existing tall buildings in New York City. Focused on low-carbon technologies, design and construction practices, these firms will share their “playbooks” for achieving carbon neutrality that others can follow to overcome technical barriers in a way that makes financial sense.

Time: 1:00-5:00 pm
Cost: $350


FullStack Modular Tour  (3 AIA LU|HSW CEUs pending)

Manufacturers and developers are working to optimize cost-effective integration of energy efficiency strategies and control systems by leveraging innovations in modular construction. This tour will take attendees to Brooklyn to visit FullStack Modular, which designs, manufacturers and constructs mid- and high-rise modular projects. Participants will learn about FullStack’s processes and engage participants in a discussion about the value and opportunities for modular construction.

Time: 10:45 am-2:30 pm
Cost: $125
