Emu attending Buildings 2.0 Conference in Chicago @ UI Labs
Aug 23 all-day

What is Buildings 2.0?

This day long conference, hosted by the BuiltWorlds community, explores the opportunities of future buildings and what needs to be done to bring our goals closer to reality.

Where will Emu be?

We’ll be rolling into town the afternoon of the 22nd, and we’ll unfortunately have to leave the Windy City the evening of the 23rd after the conference. If you’re round Chicago way, though, get in touch and meet up with us!

The Healthy Side of Zero-Energy: High Performance Building @ Odell Brewing Company
Aug 28 @ 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM

Emu is delivering this presentation for the Northern Colorado Renewable Energy Society. To find out about attending the event or becoming a member, please visit the NCRES Meetup Group.


Presentation Summary:

Buildings are for humans. We spend 90% of our lives indoors, and there is much more at stake for our health than a high energy bill. You may think that current building code effectively addresses issues such as mold, internal pollutants, and durability of buildings. However, there is a large gap between proven building science and mainstream applications.

Renewables, high-efficiency appliances, and LED lights are all fantastic and necessary innovations in the journey for humans to compensate for our high consumption of energy. But what about health, comfort, conservation, and durability? In the big push to revolutionize our built environment, we need not stop half way when there is proven data available for best practice when considering human health and comfort.

In this presentation, Enrico Bonilauri, of the Denver based international firm Emu Systems, will present cutting edge research led by the Passive building movement and its practical and cost-effective implementation in the local building market.

Emu Expo Booth at Greenbuild2018 in Chicago @ McCormick Place
Nov 14 – Nov 16 all-day

What is Greenbuild2018?

Greenbuild International Conference and Expo is the face to face experience for sustainability in the built environment. It’s for professionals in architecture, construction, engineering, planning, and interior design who depend on thoughtful and ethical solutions which promote wellness and resiliency in construction and urban development.

The theme for Greenbuild 2018 is Human x Nature.

HUMAN BY NATURE // THE INTERSECTION OF HUMANITY & THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT
The green building movement embraces all of humanity by making sustainable buildings and environments accessible to everyone, and in doing so, benefits the natural environment all around us. We are helping people understand their role in protecting and preserving the natural environment and leveraging the built environment to:

  1. Enhance human health and wellbeing
  2. Ensure resiliency
  3. Mitigate climate change
  4. Enhance community and social equity
  5. Restore and protect our ecosystems
  6. Enhance building efficiency and performance
  7. Promote sustainable design

The future of the human race is interlaced with the future of the planet, and the sustainable practices we celebrate and advance at Greenbuild remind us that our success as sustainability advocates, practitioners and professionals is more than a movement, it is a responsibility.


Where will Emu be?

We are excited to have been granted an exclusive “startup booth”, reserved for emerging companies offering innovative approaches to green building. Make sure to stop by and say hi! (Exact booth location TBD.)
