NEXTbuilding Forum Presentation: Alternative Building Materials 

   

As we continue our evolving understanding of building science principles 
as they relate to high performance buildings and reducing our built form’s impact on the planet it is ironic that “everything old is new again”.  The question becomes are natural, locally/regionally sourced, non-toxic, bio-based wall assemblies possible in our cold weather climate region of the U.S?  Can these types of building envelope systems be effective without causing hygro-thermal performance and assembly durability issues?  Join us for a NBF conclave live webinar presentation by a leading national expert that will provide an understanding of two fundamental natural materials: straw and clay.  This presentation will describe material properties and a methodology for using each of them appropriately in cold, wet climates and still avoid moisture, rot and mold issues.  Individuals pursuing local straw bale projects will be on hand to share their knowledge as well.  

Come and learn how yes, in fact it is possible!
