RENT: Green Style in Houston

May 13, 2010

Some people living in apartments or duplexes might think they are left out of the green building and energy conservation world because they rent instead of own. Steve Stelzer will give introductory remarks about the Houston Multi-Family Habitability Code that brings below-par facilities up to code (and in the direction of Green). Guest speakers will discuss their approaches to:

  • Design a LEED-registered multifamily project in Houston discussing the various Green building strategies as well as how it will be used.
  • Install affordable retrofits and repairs in apartments to save on energy and water consumption.
  • Analyze multifamily residential facilities to improve their energy and water efficiency and assign a rate of return on investment.
