Discover invaluable insights at the NW EcoBuilding Guild’s February Education Event featuring case studies utilizing the BEAM Tool, where we’ll delve into lessons learned, highlight embodied carbon reductions, and explore strategies for setting baselines in sustainable residential new construction homes.
Sean Conta of Targa Homes will showcase his Nearly Net-Zero ADU, as featured in Fine Homebuilding. Sean will discuss how the BEAM Tool was instrumental in calculating the embodied carbon of construction, enabling the team to input building characteristics and measurements to compare the carbon impact of various material choices. The project exemplified a remarkable 30% reduction in carbon emissions (measured in kgCO2e) compared to conventional material choices.
Talia Dreicer from TC Legend Homes will also share compelling case studies demonstrating the application of the BEAM tool to model embodied carbon reductions in positive-energy homes designed for brightness and healthy living.
