A Commercially Viable Net Zero Office Building: Technology, Beauty & Meaning

The Sustainable Energy Fund (SEF) is designing and building a Net Zero Energy office building to demonstrate that Net Zero Energy is achievable for the same cost as a conventional developer office building. The new SEF headquarters will be a model of how buildings can and should be done moving forward. In this session, the design team will immerse participants in the SEF design process, sharing how a design process rooted in regenerative thinking was used to develop design concepts, energy budgets and specific technological solutions to create a building that embodies the vision and mission of the SEF. During the session, participants will work in small groups to share ideas on how to achieve not only Net Zero Energy, but also deep sustainability and resilience.
