Building Green is Building Smart

An E4S Second Wednesday Akron Network Event in Partnership with the Northeast Ohio Chapter of the United States Green Building Council. Even though the greenest building is the building that is already built, most building owners are confronted with the decision at some point to invest in a remodel, a building systems retrofit or even the construction of a new facility. As energy costs continue to climb, high performance building strategies and technologies are important to consider early in the planning process of a new construction or remodel project. Learn from the practitioners at work in greater Akron and surrounding communities who are embedding green building principles in their facilities. What innovations in high performance building techniques are emerging? Where does the green building industry stand today, both locally and nationally? Who is successfully reducing their long term facility operating costs through the adoption of green building practices? Stop by E4S on November 9th to engage in the conversation around these questions and more as E4S and the Northeast Ohio Chapter of the USGBC explore the green building market in Akron. Presentations by:?Michele Kilroy - Executive Director, Northeast Ohio Chapter of USGBC offers anoverview of green building advancements in Akron, Northeast Ohio and the U.S.?Matt Sutter - Vice President of Construction, Sol Harris/Day Architecture providesa look behind the scenes of the soon to be opened LEED Gold Bridgestone Americas Advanced Technology Center in Akron?Laura Steinbrink - Founder, Humanity's Loom takes us on a virtual tour of the energy and environmental metrics associated with the recently completed LEED Registered Old Dominion Freight Lines Cross Dock Facility in CantonNo cost to attend.
