One of our main goals at 475 is to stimulate conversation on high performance building practices, philosophies, products, and people. It’s what we feel is required to drive the market forward, and what both we ourselves and you as professionals are genuinely interested in hearing. We try to keep our content unobtrusive, delivering to our followers no more than one email a month, while maintaining an active social media presence to keep you informed about some of the projects, events, and topics most interesting to us, but what we don’t always get across are some of the conversations that happen with our customers on a day-to-day basis. We receive a constant flow of questions via email, phone, online chat, and in person on job sites and at our Brooklyn, NY headquarters. We also want the rest of our network and the high performance building community to be able to benefit from the careful answers and advice we give our customers through these channels.
That’s why this week we’re starting a new blog series called “Question of the Week”. Instead of overloading you with a cornucopia of conversations and excessive information, we’re going to pick our most interesting, new, and unique question of the week – and share feedback from our team as well as from people whose opinions we respect. We hope this will stimulate conversation, so we would love our readers to share their insight. And of course, there’s no such thing as a stupid question, so you can always feel comfortable continuing to send your other questions our way.
Get started with our fist question here.
