Green Building Rating Systems Discussion

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013

Different Hues of Green Building


Ever wondered about the differences between LEED building and Green Globes? How much further does a project need to go beyond LEED to achieve living status? What about Green Globes and Energy Star Green Buildings? Join USGBC Idaho for a conversation on green buildings where we’ll convene a panel of experts to tackle these questions.

Our Green Building Rating Systems Panel is being held from noon-1 on Thursday, Nov 14th in the conference room at Idaho Power, 1221 W Idaho Street in Boise.

This is a free, public event for anyone interested in learning more about green building. Chicken and vegetarian coconut curry with waldorf salad is available for lunch and is $10 for USGBC Idaho members and $14 for non-members. Those purchasing lunch are requested to confirm their orders through our RSVP form.

Energy Efficiency & Sustainability in the Built Environment

Friday, February 1st, 2013

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.
Boise, ID 83702
