|Introduction||A long time advocate of the “sustainable” building concept, Vera Novak was the first in the ICF industry to gain the USGBC LEED Accredited Professional designation, in 2004. Her continued work through technical and code outreach for the ICFA established her as one of the industry’s top professionals in linking building science, energy raters and the green building world.
She just completed her PhD from Virginia Tech (Hurrah!), with a research focus is on improving the process of efficient construction delivery in order to increase the adoption of energy efficient products and processes.
While English is the preferred language on this blog, Vera is a polyglot and also welcomes questions and feedback in French, German and Czech.
