Combining two leading sustainability accreditations, Passivhaus and BREEAM, the Research Acceleration Demonstration Building is at the leading edge of sustainable construction.  In short, find out how the design and construction process will create a sustainable home for future energy research.  While a site tour is included, places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
