To any long time listeners of AOC, this is your chance to get to know the host, Devon Tilly!
This is episode 3 of 4 discussing the national organization BS + Beer and Building Science.
If you hear any background noise, that's because this podcast was recorded LIVE at Tradecraft Industries during a BS + Beer meeting in December, 2023! Today's episode features Devon and Robby as co-hosts taking questions from the BS + Beer member audience. Robby interviews Devon before we take questions - here's your chance to learn more about Devon! Devon and Robby discuss building science, the AOC podcast, and Devon's business, Mountain View Window and Door. We also get to listen to discussion & questions from the audience.
"Building Science is the people. Building Science is...people coming together on a system. It's innovators working together."
Robby Schwarz has been a champion of home performance for over 25 years, focusing on building performance, applied building science, and system thinking. He is committed to helping industry partners, builders, code jurisdictions, and others understand residential energy, applied building science, systems thinking, home performance and our role in the built environment. His interest started in 1995, while exploring how to incorporate green building materials into the production building environment. Soon after, Robby founded his first company, BuiltWright, Inc. In 2006, he cofounded EnergyLogic, now the largest energy rating firm of its kind in Colorado. In 2020 he became the principal thinker and founder of BUILDTank, Inc., a pragmatic building think tank specializing in actionable applied building science solutions. He is actively involved in energy code development, builder and trade training, and educating the next generation of residential energy experts. He has helped Colorado jurisdictions develop and implement their energy codes, presented code language that was successfully adopted at the national ICC® code hearings, and encouraged implementation of the simulated performance path for code compliance. His ability to integrate applied building science and systems thinking with building programs such as Energy Star®, Indoor airPlus®, and DOE Zero Energy Ready Homes® has lead to thousands of certified homes in Colorado.
