Heart of a Building is about creating a better future.
We make videos that tell the stories of innovators who are designing, financing, constructing, and occupying the buildings of tomorrow, today!
Our stories showcase the state-of-the-art technical expertise behind energy-efficient buildings that are out-performing existing codes. We explore the heart-centered reasons — the “why” — behind each project.
Our videos feature buildings that transform the places we inhabit into spaces that can exist in harmony with nature! Our debut video aired on Rocky Mtn PBS on April 24, 2021 followed by our 3 newest, 30-minute-long episodes that in aired on November 7th, 14th and 21st, 2021. You can stream any of these episodes here at RMPBS – Heart of a Building.
WHY WE CARE | Increasing energy efficiency and enhancing building performance is key to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and the unsustainable use of resources. The building sector in the U.S. accounts for over one-third of our greenhouse gas emissions, more than 70% of our electricity consumption. It uses more than 40% of our total energy utilization. We already have the expertise to construct and power buildings using renewable energy sources while improving indoor air quality and comfort. We just have to inspire greater adoption and implementation!
Our PBS episodes, technical videos, and continuing education for professionals seek to do just that…inspire us all to want these amazing buildings to become the norm – in retrofitting and remodeling existing buildings as well as in new construction!
Your support of $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, or even $999 per video episode (or in total) will help us get these episodes produced! We must reach our fundraising goals by March 18, 2022, to have our next season of 6 new episode produced and by spring 2022 so, make your pledge of support today!!!
Here are two examples of episodes that were produced in 2021 because of support from people like you through Go Fund Me last year:
