Energy Efficiency & Sustainability in the Built Environment

5You are invited to our upcoming Energy Efficiency & Sustainability in the Built Environment Meeting on March 1st at 10AM in the Banner Bank Building.
A recent national news article stated that “green” is not living up to its promises, pointing out that LEED certified buildings are, in many cases, performing worse than their non-LEED counterparts and cost more to construct.  However, the article does not solely point the finger at the design or construction; rather, it strongly implicates operations as the key culprit – the facility folks.
Now this does not mean that the A/Es, the GCs/CMs, or Owners are off the hook.  Rather this article reiterates the need for all project stakeholders from design to construction through operations to partner with each other and to learn from each other, so that the Owner can truly realize the performance designed and built into their building.
To bolster our discussions and knowledge sharing, the Northern Rockies Chapter of IFMA, in partnership with the USGBC Idaho Chapter, cordially invite you to join us March 1st at the Banner Bank Building for this time of learning and sharing.
There will be presentations from both USGBC and IFMA members and a roundtable discussion comprised of those who have designed, built, and operated green buildings.
This will be a great opportunity for our respective members to learn from each other – Architects, Engineers, Contractors, and Facility Managers alike will be able to share their successes, headaches, and lessons learned from project development, construction, and operations.
Come join us as we tackle this problem head-on!
Friday March 1, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM MST (Lunch is included) 

Banner Bank Building – 2nd Floor Conference Room
950 W Bannock St.
