Regenerative Construction Ecosystems

Community resilience & adaptation with sustainable forestry, Passive House & industrialized construction | A Symposium January 26-27

Industrialized wood construction through well managed forest resources can reduce wildfire risk, while delivering decarbonized buildings that are healthier for occupants, assembled rapidly, and adaptable. Passive House is a global ultra low-energy building standard that offers resilience in the face of wildfires, energy insecurity, and a warming world.

Regenerative Construction Ecosystems is a free 6-hour symposium, over two days, focused on how wood industrialized construction deployed to meet the Passive House standard, can lead to decarbonized environments that are resilient and adaptable to our changing environments.
