Join us live or virtually as we tour the home named Burh Becc at Beacon Springs. Burh Becc, meaning, in Old English, a dwelling by a creek. The home has been designed as a “living building” and is registered to pursue the Living Building Challenge standards of the International Living Future Institute. It is also a registered LEED project, aiming for Platinum certification. During the course, we will be highlighting the main features that make this home sustainable in regards net zero energy design, water conservation, better materials, health, beauty and more.
Amanda Webb Nichols RA, NCARB, CDT, LEED-AP BD+C Senior Project Administrator of Catalyst Partners who served as the Living Building Challenge Ambassador and LBC project team facilitator/coordinator, will be leading the presentation with the Burh Becc integrated project delivery team. Amanda Webb Nichols is an architectural professional with more than 15 years of experience in architecture, interior design and construction. Amanda believes that sustainable building is more than a buzzword and a series of data points to check off. As a registered architect, she has built her career around building practices that save energy and preserve the environment. Her interest extends far beyond architecture.
