On Wednesday, April 18th, SOM Associate Director Jon Cicconi will speak at the Getting to Zero National Forum in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He will join a session titled "Inefficiency is Old School! Lessons of Designing Zero Energy School Buildings." In his presentation—titled "P.S. 62: Using Net Zero Energy to Create a 'Sustainability Lab' for the Future of NYC's Public Schools"—Cicconi will discuss the design of the Kathleen Grimm School for Leadership and Sustainability at Sandy Ground. It is New York's first net-zero-energy school.
The conference provides industry professionals with opportunities to share perspectives on the development of zero energy, learn about best practices, and collaborate on opportunities to incorporate zero energy into the built environment. Joining Cicconi will be Jeremy Shannon, Director of Sustainable Design for the New York City School Construction Authority, and Robert Diemer, Founding Partner of In Posse, a subsidiary of AKF Group.
