Toftrees Golf Resort, State College, PA

Help Accelerate the Use of Low-Carbon Concrete

Join us for a one-day symposium on resilient building design, where architects, engineers, and contractors will explore the integration of Zero Energy and Resilient Construction methods for sustainable communities. In an era marked by climate challenges, this event focuses on innovative approaches that fortify structures against disaster while promoting energy independence. Discover how resilient construction, combined with energy-efficient design and robust materials aligns with sustainability principles, offering a balanced solution for durability, energy efficiency, and disaster resilience. Come collaborate to envision a future where buildings actively contribute to environmentally conscious and sustainable communities.
