This workshop will provide hands-on, real world exposure to a deep energy retrofit project in process. The workshop will take place at a residence in Falmouth, Maine which is undergoing a deep energy retrofit with the goal of becoming a net zero energy building. The workshop will include in-field exposure to core techniques in deep energy retrofit as well as identification of the unexpected and unique issues that arise when actually applying deep energy retrofit techniques in a real rather than “ideal” case. Participants will visit the site at four intervals during the building process for in-depth tours and instruction. Each site visit will last approximately two-hours.
