On February 24th, join Dr. Habib Dagher and architect Caleb Johnson of Caleb Johnson Studio in a discussion with Shannon Richards, Vice President of MEREDA, about new and developing building and energy technologies HERE IN MAINE!
How can we make our projects COST LESS – AND – have the greatest POSITIVE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS? Is it possible that MAINE could be a LEADER IN NEW AND EMERGING TECHNIQUES that are market ready and relevant for developers, architects, builders NOW and our active project pipeline?
Learn how can we create enough demand for these locally generated technologies and materials to DRIVE DOWN THE BOTTOM LINE!
Dr. Dagher is leading a team of 260 engineers at the University of Maine Orono on a number of exciting projects, and already working with the private marketplace to land his products and materials into the hands of businesses that are putting them to use. The two greatest ways we can positively influence our environment is through improvements to our housing and the way we energize our community. His research in OFF-SHORE WIND TURBINES and CROSS LAMINATED TIMBER, as well as 3-D PRINTING WOOD BASED BUILDING MATERIALS can change the way we choose to make and energize our buildings here in Maine.
