Past Pro Tours
This Pro Tour explored the Schiller Coastal Studies Center, a scientific village that is the new home for Bowdoin’s Marine Science program.

May's Pro Tour showcased a recently built hemplime-insulated home on Cape Cod. The project team was eager to share their collaborative approach for creating a home that met their client’s vision for a net-zero, storm-resistant, healthy materials home.
NESEA returned to the Hudson Valley for a tour of Zero Place, an award-winning mixed-use building, poised to bring the town of New Paltz 6 commercial and 46 residential units.
