There are many paths, certifications and techniques to building Net-Zero buildings. The Passive House design helps achieve great efficiencies in buildings, reducing long-term costs and stacking functions in the living area, but is it the best? The Northwest is rich with styles, knowledge and experts, creating buildings that produce energy to power themselves and beyond. Join us as our presenters discuss their experiences developing Passive House and other Net-Zero designs, highlighting the ups and downs of each model in the Northwest environment, and what has helped their buildings achieve this sustainability goal.


Dan Whitmore, of Indicator. After wearing many different hats during a 30-year career in construction, Dan likes one particular style: the “thinking cap.” Building goals can and should be far reaching with respect for style, craft, place, and the world in which they are built.

Ted Clifton Jr., of TC Legend Homes. With a focus on building with Structurally Insulated Panels (SIPs), Ted builds Net-Positive energy homes, capable of powering themselves and an electric car, for about $200/sq. ft.

Joe Giampietro, Principal with Nicholson Kovalchick Architects, designs, builds and develops multi-family housing, bringing high-performance, low-energy building to the real estate industry for over 25 years. As an architect and landscape architect, Joe is committed to LEAN construction initiatives, improving the quality of our built environment.
