  • we’re here to talk about “green”, and what it means to us, and where we all go next. what we’ve done, what green looks like, what LEED looks like Talk what it means for you with your potential clients, how you respond when someone asks “how do i make it green” this is the stuff you need to know to look smart.
  • we’re a mid-sized architecture firm, in business for 4 years. upstairs in the old port. primarily residential, new construction, renovation, multi-family
  • and then we have this. how many of these have you all seen in your careers?
  • it’s got some big problems. The famous line is that we’re burning oil we bought from people who don’t like us with money borrowed from china.
  • and it’s changing our climate. numbers look really bad. current track is 5 - 10 feet higher ocean levels by 2100. no higgins or scarborough beach, but also no maine state pier to worry about
  • and to top it all off, this thing is loud, it stinks, you have to store 275 gallons of toxic goo in your basement, and it’s so expensive to run you keep your thermostat at 65 all winter. we’re here to tell you, THERE’S ANOTHER WAY.
  • HERE’S HOW WE’RE DOING IT WITH NEW CONSTRUCTION
  • now, part of what we do is design custom homes. this one’s in Falmouth, on the water. this is a fun part of our business.
  • it’s a beautiful home. this is what this leed home looks like. LEED early adopters are driven by bragging rights, desire for proof their contractor did what they said they would.
  • radiant heat, durable finishes, non-toxic materials, good clean air. warm and cozy.
  • screen porches on the water, warm in the winter
  • SIP, ERV, PV, GSHP, DESUPERHEATER, POLYCARBONATE NANO-GEL CURTAIN WALL, FSC DECKING
  • SIP, ERV, PV, GSHP, DESUPERHEATER, POLYCARBONATE NANO-GEL CURTAIN WALL, FSC DECKING
  • fabulous roof deck to throw big parties
  • high end kitchen. all cabinets no formaldehyde, no off gassing
  • some rougher pictures, you all are the first to see this house. falmouth, ON THE WATER near audobon. super low energy
  • still under construction, but that little propane fireplace over there will heat the whole house on coldest day of year, with room to spare
  • how we built it: some technical details. this is a double stud wall, packed with cellulose insulation. r-40
  • no guessing anymore! this is a blower door test. 900 cfm50. who has ever done one of these? on this project we did 3.
  • no toxic build up from construction, just fresh clean air even in the winter
  • save energy, yes, but amazing thing is increased comfort. stand next to window on a freezing winter day, and you are warm and cozy. it’s hard to imagine if you haven’t been in a house with them.
  • cover of maine home and design
  • lots of press
  • proud owner with his gear. no furnace! all electric, where our houses are going.
  • COMES ON A TRUCK, ASSEMBLED WITH A CRANE, BUILT IN 2 DAYS. faster, better quality, predictable cost. it’s coming.
  • WHAT ABOUT THE HOUSES YOU SEE EVERY DAY?
  • pleasant ave in portland. you all know these houses. not bad shape, some vinyl, decent windows, still cold draft and expensive.
  • owners are ready to make it more beautiful and restore it nicely, but what about GREEN?
  • 50 sf kitchen, asbestos encased steam boiler. 2,000 gallons of oil a year?
  • first you start digging.
  • vinyl on asbestos on lead paint
  • new layer of foam, drainage plane, new double glazed low-e marvin windows
  • need more mee...
  • sometimes the greenest thing to to tear something badly built down. lifetime embodied energy.
  • thick blanket of foam over everything. not getting under there again for 40 years.
  • new windows, blown in insulation in old house, side by side improvement.
  • maximize the lot and yard they already have, but never got to use.
  • what we don’t know is your strategy as realtors, what do you do when your clients are looking at an existing house they want to green?
  • 2,000 SF HOUSE
  • 2,000 SF HOUSE
  • 2,000 SF HOUSE
  • this seal shows up on fridges, windows and whole houses. They also certify energy auditors
  • this is a blower door test. 900 cfm50
  • ENERGY MODEL: $350 comparison of before and after
  • $ & CENTS
  • cozy new basement, no mold, mildew or water issues.
  • big stack of foam glued to the walls.
  • COMFORT IS MISSING
