    About the Project:

    The C. Gerald Lucey Building in Brockton Massachusetts was one of the most sustainable buildings in the Commonwealth's inventory when it was completed in 2022. Several design features led to this distinction and to substantial energy savings including a finely tuned building envelope to advanced mechanical systems. One element that stands out above the rest due to it's rarity in the New England region is the use of Mass timber. Building with wood has several advantages from both a design and construction perspective, but is not without its challenges. With this discussion we will shed light on both.

    The Green Engineer:

    Massachusetts is targeting Net Zero Carbon by 2050. As the electric grid gets cleaner, all electric buildings will reduce their emissions, while fossil fuel-based heating systems will become an albatross around their owner’s neck. For this reason, we’re seeing a push for electrification of building systems by owners and by industry regulations such as the new MA Stretch Energy Code. And with the promise of clean electricity reducing operational carbon, there is increased emphasis on reducing embodied carbon in construction. In this session we will explain the changes we’re seeing in the industry, and what this means for existing buildings and new construction.
