Denver’s own Emu Systems are experts in energy efficiency, Passive House standards, building analysis, and builder training.

In this presentation, Enrico Bonilauri will speak about building related health issues caused by poor design and construction. By taking the approach that buildings are first and foremost FOR humans, building professionals can ensure that comfort, hygiene and durability are addressed in new construction and especially in energy retrofits. With the right strategies and tools, high performance building can mean healthy building.
