Net-Zero Energy Renovations
Feb 22 03:00 PM - 05:00 PM
Purdue University Northwest - Hammond
Roger Frechette, managing principal of Interface Engineering, will touch on many strategies currently being used in Net-Zero Energy buildings across the country when he comes to Purdue University Northwest (PNW) as the fourth speaker in the 2018-19 School of Engineering Distinguished Speaker Series.
American Geophysical Union (AGU) Headquarters Building Case Study
A compelling case study for the American Geophysical Union Headquarters Building will be offered to demonstrate the process the design team used to distill available sustainable options down to a select ‘bundle’ of strategies to achieve the Net-Zero goal. Frechette will highlight both the opportunities and challenges associated with the design, construction and commissioning of Net-Zero projects.
Frechette’s presentation is at 3 p.m. Friday, Feb. 22, at the Center for Innovation through Visualization and Simulation (CIVS) on the Purdue Northwest Hammond Campus, Room 115 in the Powers Building, 6937 Woodmar Ave. The event is free and open to the public.
