Are you a developer interested in how green development is changing the market? Or are you an architect or engineer, curious about how to leverage the financial benefits of sustainable design to achieve higher project goals? This week we kick off the 2013 Fall Lecture Series with Ashley Lemon from ARES Real Estate Services out of Golden, Colorado.
He will be providing the developers perspective on the business case for green developers. The talk will feature projects procured by their full-service, vertically-integrated development firm, while showing financial numbers and statistics that prove an increase in project value due to sustainable and energy efficient design.
Also, USGBC Idaho is hosting a free public reception after the talk at CTA Architects just two blocks away from Idaho Power at 1185 Grove Street in Boise. Anyone and everyone interested in continuing the conversation with Ashley is invited to attend and join in the conversation. We will offer free beer, wine and light appetizers.

Join us for the September Green LEEDers event on the 11th from 5:30-7:00pm. We’ll meet for social hour at Papa Joes (1301 S. Capital Blvd) then head across the street for a tour of the new BSU College of Businees and Economics building which has many high performance features including geothermal heating, a chilled beam cooling system, plentiful daylighting, green roof sections and much more.
According to the College of Business and Economics’ website sustainability was a central consideration in the design and construction process. “For example, plans include using geothermal energy as a heating source and optimizing use of natural light. The high-performance, environmentally progressive building is expected to use at least 40 percent less energy than a comparable structure.”
We’ll hear from Dr. John Gardner, director of CAES Energy Efficiency Research Institute, and Remington Buyer, founder of the BSU Green Building Club. Plus we’ll have insight from members of the design team and the construction team as we tour the features of the building.
Meet at Papa Joes for social hour networking from 5:30-6:15
Walk to COBE for short talk and begin the tour from 6:15-7:00
