This NESEA Pro Tour featured a single-family, net-zero energy home designed to meet ambitious performance metrics in a cold, coastal climate.  The hosting team from Benjamin & Company shared the building and design strategies that made this project a reality.

The event began with a workshop presentation from the hosts and project partners, detailing the history of the project, from design strategies through the home’s completion and occupancy. During the tour, the hosting company was joined by project partners who spoke to specific aspects of their work on this home and the site it occupies.  The event concluded with a reception and Q&A.
