2018 HPC National Conference Session

Auditing Multifamily Buildings for Single Family Auditors and Programs

Monday, April 23
8:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Location: Salon B (5th Floor)
CEUs: BPI, InterNachi, NARI, ASHI

If you and your company want to learn the basic and advanced aspects of auditing multifamily buildings, this all day seminar will increase your knowledge and widen your perspectives. Single family auditors and efficiency programs shy away from multifamily buildings (defined as 5+units) because they are reticent in dealing with the owner and don’t want to learn new “building science”. Multifamily owners, however, are more willing to address efficiency investments because it increases cash flow in the building and stabilizes tenancy; and the science of buildings does not change dramatically, the holes are just bigger. Listen in as two national multifamily experts walk you through the process of auditing buildings and negotiating with owners, and then in the afternoon, perform a walkthrough audit of a local building. This is a two part workshop, and people are required to go to both parts.
