The Conscious Builder recently celebrated 10 years as a business! Here are the top 3 things I have learned in the first ten years of our construction business.
Casey is joined by Christine Williamson, creator of the popular Instagram page @BuildingScienceFightClub, an educational project that teaches architects about building science and construction. They discuss why building assemblies is important, finding the sweet spot for owners, the true meaning of "green", and how Christine's popular Instagram page came to be.
Christine Williamson has spent her career in building science forensics, discovering why buildings fail, and working with owners, architects, and builders to remedy the problems. Her new construction consulting helps architects use building science not only to mitigate risk of failure, but also to help them make their projects as energy efficient as they are beautiful. She graduated from Princeton University and studied at Boston Architectural College before completing her Master's of Architecture at NewSchool of Architecture + Design. She is the chair of ASHRAE Technical Committee 1.12, Moisture Management in Buildings.
Casey Grey interviews Vish Chatterji, The Business Casual Yogi, where they discuss the intersection of yoga and the construction business. Learn more about Vish's book and how mindfulness, meditation, and yoga have impacted both their personal and professional lives. Throughout his 20-years in Corporate America, Vish studied and practiced yoga, meditation and Ayurveda as a way to stay balanced as a leader. He now coaches business leaders in this East-meets-West approach to help more of their greatness show up at work.
