On Friday, June 25 the Maine Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council will be hosting a tour of the Bright Built Barn, a net-zero building which has received numerous accolades including LEED Platinum and a 2009 LEED for Homes Innovative Project Award.
Here is a summary of the event:
Join us for a tour of this award-winning, practical, affordable, beautiful structure that is one of the only buildings in the world to be designed to be truly carbon neutral: by making more clean energy than it consumes, over its lifespan, BrightBuilt Barn will actually offset all the atmospheric greenhouse gases produced by its construction.
This in-depth tour will be led by Keith Collins, BrightBuilt’s owner, and Phil Kaplan of Kaplan Thompson Architects, the project’s architect.
ReVision Energy will be there to answer any questions about the renewable energy systems on the building. Please RSVP by Wednesday, June 23 to attend – the event is $10 for members of the Maine Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council, and $12 for non-members.
