Education ESNH: Advanced Building Science (Part 1)

Building a better home is just good business. That starts with understanding the fundamentals of Advanced Building Science – learn how the best builders are improving the quality of their product in cost-effective ways.  Even those builders participate in certification programs such as ENERGY STAR® and Net Zero will benefit from learning more efficient practices.

This highly-recommended workshop is an introduction to the principles behind energy efficient construction.

This is a must-attend for those who:

  • Are new to the ENERGY STAR® for New Homes program
  • Have new staff who need to better understand your business
  • Have suppliers who need to understand high-performance home building
  • Could use a building science refresher

Discover why thousands use the ENERGY STAR® training series to build better homes, gain a reputation as exceptional builders, increase customer satisfaction, and prevent post-construction call-backs and other deficiencies.

Please note: For those builders new to the ENERGY STAR® program, this workshop is a pre-requisite to taking Part 2: ESNH V17.
