Portland, ME – Building scientist and physicist Lucas Hamilton, often referred to as the “green guru,” will be among the feature presenters at this year’s High-Performance Building Conference on March 26 in Portland.

“Lucas and fellow presenters Roy Schauffele, Melissa Payne and David Leslie are among the best in the country. They’re highly knowledgeable,” said Valerie Paquin-Gould, president of Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) – Maine Chapter.  “We’re very excited to bring them and their expertise to Maine building professionals.”
