Net Zero Energy Home Groundbreaking
On May 1st, the Career & Technology Education Center (C-TEC) of Licking County will hold their groundbreaking ceremony for the much anticipated Net Zero Energy Model Home.
The groundbreaking marks the end of a two year long process of teaching, training and design that included instructors and students from C-TEC as well as design professionals, energy specialists, and building science specialists. M+A Architects is pleased to have been the architect for the project and was given the unique experience of not only designing the project, but also teaching the C-TEC instructors and students about how to build Net-Zero Energy and more sustainable homes.
The Net Zero Energy Model Home will be built by students of C-TEC with the guidance of their instructors and product specialists from key material donors. One of those donors and the main partner for the project is Owens Corning, who provided not only material for the project, but also energy, moisture, and comfort modeling. Using a software called WUFI, the project ran advanced hygrothermal analysis at each step of development.
The Net Zero Home will mark the first of its kind analyzed and designed from both a hygrothermal as well as thermal comfort standpoint.
Please join us for this exciting celebration!
