Home Episode 96: High Performance Mechanicals at the Build Show Build: Boston Site
In this week's episode of The Build Show Podcast, Matt and Steve go deep into high-performance mechanicals using the Build Show Build: Boston site as an example.

They dig into electrical, plumbing, and HVAC systems and what they've learned over 40+ years of building.

Steve defines the difference between a "clean" basement and a "dirty" basement and the benefits of designating and strategically situating mechanical spaces. They discuss specific systems and products, their strengths and weaknesses, and some of their pet peeves.

You can find Steve on Instagram at @stevenbaczekarchitect. His videos are on The Build Show here, and the Build Show Build: Boston series is here. His podcast is at
