The workshop is targeted for licensed professionals, including Architects, Contractors, Designers, Specifiers, Municipalities, Code Enforcers, Builders, Students, and anyone interested in revitalizing and making aging housing stock green and more energy efficient and they say it is not intended for the general public.
Below is an except of the Green Remodeling workshop description.
“The greenest building is the existing one”
The federal tax credits for green remodeling end energy efficient improvements have tripled to 30%. Industry research suggests that remodeling and retrofitting the nation’s older homes will have a more significant effect on reducing residential energy consumption than meeting even the most aggressive efficiency goals for new homes. Help your clients take advantage of government incentives and tax credits.
Upon completion of this session, you will be able to overcome common objections to going green, including the myth that green is too expensive, green is not durable, green is a gimmick, green materials are not easily available, and green does not make sense. The featured case study is Arizona’s first LEED certified single-family remodel, providing strong support for green remodeling. Attendees will learn common mistakes to avoid, best practices, how to design green, the cost and return on energy efficient improvements including solar, the latest in government incentives for green remodeling, green material sourcing, recycle and reuse guides, and an introduction to green rating systems including LEED and NAHB.
