This meetup is dedicated to incubating the support, continued education, and networking of building performance professionals, including: -Building Engineers and Operators -Contractors, Builders and Architects -Energy Auditors and Diagnosticians -Inspectors, Appraisers and Realtors -Inventors, Suppliers and Manufacturers of High-Performance Products -Researchers, Trainers, and Policy/Program Directors
We meet once a month in the Chicagoland area to participate in short trainings, ask and answer questions, and support each other in the business of building performance. Residential, Commercial, and Industrial buildings alike are discussed. Special consideration is given to retrofitting existing buildings, which is crucial now more than ever, due to the mandates of federal and local weatherization and retro-commissioning programs.
Members must be professionals in the field, or training to be so. Consumers and homeowners are asked not to attend, to allow for discussions that require significant technical knowledge, and also to free members to discuss challenges with clientele, ethical issues, and problems with current standards.
