Net Zero Building Showcase featuring three projects:
- You Work to Solve the Problems You Created – meeting campus net zero goals with a paradigm shift in building design. In the traditional approach to building design, the design solution creates other problems and creates a chain reaction of resource hungry solutions. Focusing on a paradigm shift from this traditional approach, James Moler, Mechanical Engineering Specialist and Kyle Nottmeier, Sr. Design Architect of Jacobs will provide a small aspect of the building design shift needed and process that went into their recent design of an international net zero technology campus. Presenting their insight on the balance of Quality, Quantity, and Budget; how they defined the difference between resources and limited resources, and how they used this insight to constrain and form the design in order to meet the net zero goals of this technology campus
- My Journey to a Net Zero Single Family Home – continuing the conversation of building decarbonization. Returning to the podium this month is Greg Carl, a panelist from August’s evening program, Building Decarbonization: Why Does It Matter and Where do YOU Fit In? Greg Carl will be discussing the net zero resources and methods used building his residential home in Olivette, Missouri and the obstacles to implementation. Presenting energy programs and tax credits applicable to achieve net zero locally and the design, build, and implementation solutions from both the viewpoint of a casual buyer and highly motivated buyer.
- Our Corporate Commitment to Net Zero – developing a corporate strategy to meet Science Based Target Initiatives. Working as a Sr. Sustainable Development Manager, Madeline Smith of Clayco is presenting the realities of an on-site net zero strategy; the cost perspective of making a corporate commitment to net-zero; and the process of using project-based work to develop their action plan to meet Science Based Target Initiatives (SBTi). Discussing the challenges that come with net zero based on diversity, equity, and inclusion and address electrification and net zero impacts on cost, schedule, and procurement.
