Conference to Look at ‘Houses That Work’
The Energy & Environmental Building Association presents the 24th annual Excellence in Building Conference and Expo Oct. 10-12 in Norfolk, Va. at the Hampton Roads Convention Center and the Embassy Suites Hotel.
EEBA is known for its “Houses that Work” educational program, which is offered periodically around the country and has been presented at NAHB’s annual Green Building Conference with standing-room-only attendance.
“Houses that Work is kind of a name, and it’s kind of a perspective,” said code consultant and EEBA board member Craig Conner. The annual conference, he said, features seminars that follow the “Houses that Work” philosophy. “It’s builder-oriented, practical advice for building durable, moisture-resistant, energy efficient homes — at a profit,” he said.
Conference sessions include information on sales and marketing as well as construction how-to’s. Among popular speakers returning to the conference will be Joe Lstiburek, whose topic this year is “How to Defeat Al Qaeda with Insulation.”
“Joe is always entertaining,” Conner said.
Other sessions include information on zero-energy homes, selecting the right-sized air conditioning and heating units and multifamily issues.
The early registration deadline is Sept. 15. Visit www.eeba.org to learn more, or read the conference agenda.
