Water has become a major issue in building new homes – from managing stormwater for the development and on individual home sites, to landscaping and irrigation choices, to plumbing fixtures and appliances, to the potential of using greywater and rainwater – water is an increasingly important part of the new construction process. In addition, as we build more thermally efficient dwellings and install more energy efficient appliances, hot water use has grown to become the 1st or 2nd largest energy use in the home. People’s expectations of the performance of their water systems has increased, not to mention that many areas of the country are experiencing stresses on their water supply and quality.
This full day seminar will provide participants a framework for understanding the relationship of water to the sites they develop and the buildings they build. Outdoor water use; indoor water use, both hot and cold; and advanced systems such as rainwater and greywater will be discussed, and how best to integrate these components into effective systems in upcoming projects will be explained.
The following are upcoming locations of all Educational Sessions:
