In the wake of the Marshall Fire, there are hundreds of families in Boulder County in need of practical, useful advice as they take steps toward the rebuilding process. This event is the second in a year-long series of conversations and trainings hosted by the CGBG and sponsored by Boulder County intended to connect high performance building professionals and members of the public looking for expert advice and live Q&A about the ins and outs of building a high-performance home.
This session features Andrew Michler as he presents on the overlapping design details of Firewise guidance and high performance building. Firewise USA® is a national recognition program that teaches people how to adapt to living with wildfire and encourages neighbors to work together to reduce their risk.The Colorado State Forest Service and the National Fire Protection Association work together to implement the Firewise USA® program in Colorado. As an experienced Passive House designer, Michler will discuss how low-energy, low-carbon construction benefits not only fire resistance, but resilient design in general.
This event will be a structured discussion with ample Q+A time available. The session will be available in both English and Spanish and will be recorded.
Boulder County is a sponsor of CGBG and is supporting the series with Spanish interpretation services. CGBG is a non-profit organization based in Boulder County that is run by volunteer building professionals (architects, builders, engineers, and building science interested individuals).
