2017 Sustainability Symposium

May 5, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 4:30 pm


Delaware Valley Green Building Council is excited to announce the seventh annual Sustainability Symposium, happening May 5th at Penn State at The Navy Yard. The Symposium is a full day of educational sessions covering cutting edge green building and sustainability topics and industry best practices, including LEED, Passive House, Living Building Challenge, Enterprise, WELL, green stormwater infrastructure, and 2030 Districts. Hear experts from across the region and beyond as they gather to discuss their current work, opportunities for social, environmental, and economic impact, and challenges ahead in the sustainability field. Approved for ASLA credits and AIA LU-HSWs. GBCI CE hours pending approval.

475 Co-Founder Ken Levenson will be presenting on The State of Passive House with Zehnder America and PHIUS. The Passive House standard has evolved over the past several decades, but perhaps more importantly, Passive House is pushing the evolution of mainstream building practices.  What are the lessons that Passive House practitioners can learn from other certification systems in order to increase market permeation? What are the biggest obstacles to achieving Passive House and what needs to be done to transform these obstacles into assets? This roundtable discussion with experts representing different segments of the building industry will take a critical look at the current state of Passive House, as well as its potential future.
