Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens just completed a new 30,000-square-foot visitor center. Our goal was to build to passive building standards with quality construction for under $275 sq/ft. A better process saved us millions and everyone left as friends. Participants will learn a smarter, more cost effective way to build.
