On this episode of the Construction Record podcast, digital media editor Warren Frey speaks with The Conscious Builder founder and CEO Casey Grey about his firm’s efforts to create more sustainable construction practices.
Grey said his firm’s main areas of focus are retrofits and high-performance homes. The majority of buildings in Ottawa, where the company is based, are based on a wood frame with drywall and the technology and building science hasn’t substantially changed in a century, he said. The Conscious Builder focuses on ventilation and energy use up to and including Passive House standards and net-zero energy.
The company also hosts a Youtube channel where Grey educates the public on sustainability as applied to home construction.
