PHWPA Roofs & Foundations Throwdown

November 15, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Join PHWPA for the latest in the THROWDOWN installments!

We all use hats and boots in the winter to insulate ourselves from cold air and frozen ground. Come join local architects as they discuss that same idea applied to buildings!

Our presenters will share details from Passive House projects, and other super-insulated/super-efficient buildings, that address Roofs and Foundations to radically reduce energy consumption and costs, improve occupant comfort, and expand building durability.

The following presenters will share their insights on Roofs and Foundations as they relate to current and completed projects*:

  • Kent Suhrbier, AIA, Associate Principal at BCJ
  • Patty Culley, AIA, Associate at BCJ
  • Jeff Davis, AIA, Principal at FortyEighty Architecture
  • Elliot Fabri, Jr., EcoCraft Homes
  • Michael Whartnaby, Projekthaus Design

6:30 pm – Snacks, drinks, and networking
7:00 – 9:00 pm – Introductions, presentations, and round-table discussion
