BEGINNING AT 5 PM
AT TIN MOUNTAIN CONSERVATION CENTER
Bald Hill Road, Albany NH
Building science educator Peter Yost will be back with us this fall. Peter will work with building professionals on:
1. building science principles - how heat and moisture moves on, through, and in our buildings
2. building science case studies - Peter will present on building science "puzzles" he has worked on over the years in his building investigations work
3. Marketing and selling high performance building--new construction and retrofit: Peter has worked with leading building product manufacturers over the years on just how you move homeowners from a focus on first cost per square foot and simple paybacks to a one of performance, value and investment.
4. BYOP - bring your own project/puzzle - Peter works on a regular basis with local builders in southern VT on their building puzzles and projects. Bring construction details, photos, plans, or testing and work with your peers and Peter on the what, the why, and the how of building problems and solutions.
Peter Yost is the person you turn to if you want to truly understand how to green your home. He brings more than 25 years experience in building, researching, teaching, writing, and consulting on high-performance homes to his twin roles as director of residential services for BuildingGreen, and technical director for Taunton Press's GreenBuildingAdvisor.com. His expertise stretches from construction waste management and advanced framing to energy efficiency and building durability.
Peter has been called upon to provide this building-science expertise to the nation's leading homebuilding programs, including NAHB's Green Building Standard, USGBC's LEED for Homes, EPA's WaterSense, and the U.S. Department of Energy's Building America. Peter is an instructor for Yale's School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, Boston Architectural College's Sustainable Design Certificate program and for the University of Massachusetts Department of Building Materials and Wood Technology program in Amherst. A LEED AP, he is a past co-chair of the USGBC's LEED for Homes program, a member of the LEED faculty, and a certified instructor for the NAHB Advanced Green Building: Building Science course. When not at his computer or teaching a class, Peter is often in the attic, basement, or inside the walls of his own 100-year-old home, which he is methodically transforming from an energy hog to a model of efficiency. $15 for Members, $20 for non-members.
