EcoCocon Site Tour: Panelized Straw Building In Action

July 5 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Join 475 Supply for a tour of a 10,000 sq ft EcoCocon off-grid prefab straw panel project in Clermont, NY. EcoCocon has made history by scaling up bio-building production like never before, with their new fully automated technology capable of producing 1 million sq ft of straw panels annually. Their aim is to bring this technology to the US, starting with New York, using electric trucks to achieve zero emissions delivery.
In addition to a tour of the building, you’ll hear from 5 different speakers: Peter Jensen with EcoCocon; Kevin Baxter to talk about his experience as project architect; Jamison Carallo to talk about initiating the off-grid project; as well as 475’s Corey Murphy and Eddie Fischer, who will speak to the airtightness and vapor control in natural building. Snacks and drinks will be provided!
