Our primary speaker is Bruce Bennett, a Principal at GDS Associates with nearly 20 years’ experience in the residential building construction industry. Bruce’s presentation will cover foundational principles of building science and their application within the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC), followed by an in-depth discussion of the NH Saves ENERGY STAR® Homes Program. The deep dive into the program will include an examination of the energy impacts and non-energy benefits of building to ENERGY STAR® standards, as well as the overview of the rating process and 2019 incentive levels.
Building with Insulted concrete forms (ICF) is a proven technology that makes building easier and faster and results in a product that stands amongst the highest performing building envelope designs. Please join us as Joe Harnois, President of Atlantic Builders Supply – NE and a builder for over 15 years, discusses the primary uses for ICF, some of the various installation techniques used, what energy and non-energy benefits can arise from their proper installation, and how they can be economically feasible in your next project. Joe will also share some additional resources that might be available for ICF construction, such as training.
