Future Proof: Designing and Building for Climate Change
October 8 - 4pm - 5pm
Climate change is one of the most pressing issues of our time. Over the past decade, we've witnessed dramatic changes in weather patterns, and the devastating effect on communities across the globe. Its impact on the building and design industry, especially in coastal cities like Boston, is profound.The cause of climate change is constantly debated, but its effect on the environment is hard to dispute. Building structures that are more resilient to extreme weather conditions and designing with energy efficient materials are the future. How are design and construction professionals approaching the home building and renovation process? What are the financial implications for homeowners? What materials and systems do we need to employ for optimal resilience and efficiency?
Moderated by Nancy Berry, Editor of RMS Media, our team of experts, David Boronkay, Slocum Hall Design; Troy Sober, Gregory Lombardi Design; Sarah Lawson, S+H Construction; and Ashley Jacobson, System 7, this elite panel will provide a thought-provoking discussion on this important topic and how to “future proof” residential design and construction.
