Register For The 3rd Annual “How Low Can We Go” – Historic Preservation and Carbon Reduction: Applied Trades Event

On Tuesday, September 21st, Henson Architecture will be hosting the third annual joint AIANY Committee on the Environment and Historic Building Committee “How Low Can We Go” event which will focus on applied trades in preservation work and Passive House construction. The event will feature a panel discussion with architects, uniquely positioned tradespeople, and educators.

Retrofitting existing buildings to attain higher energy performance and to increase carbon reduction is often the direct result of not just exemplary design or detailing but also skills-based knowledge and training at the level of the individual tradesperson. This is particularly the case with traditional craftsmanship and within the recently meteoric Passive House movement. At this panel, experts from different fields will come together to discuss the complications of preservation in the age of sustainability.

Panelists:
Kevin Brennan, Contractor, Brennan and Brennan Insulation and Airtightness
Peter Cox, FRSA, Managing Director, Carrig (Ireland)
Milan Jordan, Director of the HOPE Crew, National Trust for Historic Preservation
Chris Magwood, Director, The Endeavor Centre Sustainable Building School
Nick Redding, President, and   CEO, Preservation Maryland

Moderator:
Scott Henson, FAIA, CPHD, Principal, Henson Architecture

Register for the event on AIANY’s website. We hope to see you there!
