At this year’s Greenbuild International Conference and Expo in Atlanta, GA., exhibitors from across the country showcased what was new in the field of sustainable buildings and materials.
Andersen’s booth showcased plans in the works in collaboration with Yellowstone National Park to revamp the park’s Youth Campus. The proposed building, designed by Hennebery Eddy Architects and featuring custom Andersen E-Series windows, will pursue Living Building Challenge (LBC) and Passive House standards. Upon completion, the Youth Campus will be the first LBC-certified project located in a national park.
Andersen invited booth visitor to “tour” the Youth Campus through a virtual reality experience. Yellowstone Youth Program Manager Bob Fuhrmann and President of Hennebery Eddy Architects Tim Eddy, FAIA, were in the booth discussing the project and the important role the Youth Campus will play in providing residential environmental education programs for youth of all ages.
Andersen also hosted a lunch & learn panel discussion on the Youth Campus, led by Susan Roeder, Andersen strategic account manager and member of the Yellowstone Forever board of directors.
