High Rise / Low Carbon Event Series: Keep the Outside Out


During this High Rise / Low Carbon series program developed to support the Empire Building Challenge and other NYSERDA programs, hear from experts focused on recent innovations in delivering high-performance, low carbon envelope retrofits, an essential keystone for maintaining high quality indoor environments while radically lowering heating and cooling demand to realize a low-carbon future. 

Featuring diverse examples, from the over-cladding of masonry buildings to the re-cladding of curtainwall buildings, this discussion will focus on the technical aspects of high performance envelopes like integrating MEP systems into cladding, but also the ownership structures and cost compression that can result from innovation in this critical space.
