What Does Good Look Like? Getting the Green Building You Want

How can you get the building that meets your values and aspirations? Many of us start out with good intentions to build a green building, yet often we fail to meet our own high expectations. Understanding your values and how they can be translated into a building is important, as is the need to clearly define your expectations before hiring a design team.

In this interactive workshop we will walk through some of the most important rating systems (LBC, LEED, WELL and SITES) related to green buildings, human health and landscapes. We will then show how to use them to help you to clearly define your expectations, before you hire a design team, and set yourself up for success. How can you assess your organization’s short- and long-term needs? How do you gain internal and external support to go to the next level? What should be in your contract? Get the answers from the developers of an internationally recognized model of sustainability.
