Greenbuild 2017

Published on 28 Feb 2017 Written by Taryn Holowka Posted in Industry

 USGBC and GBCI also announced Greenbuild India 2017, which will be held in Mumbai, India, from Nov. 2–5. Since 2002, the conference and expo has been held annually in the United States. During the past two years, it has expanded its reach to include other nations. Greenbuild brings together global industry leaders, experts and frontline professionals dedicated to sustainable building, making it the ideal space to learn about groundbreaking green building products, services and technologies in the region.

The conference features three groundbreaking days of inspiring speakers, invaluable networking opportunities, industry showcases and an exhibit hall with the latest products, LEED workshops and tours of the host city’s green buildings.

Partnerships

To effect true market change and make the impact we need, we are working with partners every step of the way. We’ve announced partnerships with TERI and BV and with Tata Housing, when it committed to bringing 20 million square feet of LEED- and WELL-certified homes to India.

Most recently, we’ve announced partnerships with T3 around performance and with Delhi Metrorail Corporation, and we launched the new LEED for Transit system.

To learn more, check out our new LEED On video series, which celebrates leaders across India who inspire through their innovative use of green building strategies and technologies. These leaders who represent all building sectors, from education to health care, from manufacturing to hospitality, are pointing us all to a more sustainable future—one that will improve the quality of life today and for generations to come.

Green building is about reducing energy waste and water use. It’s about creating jobs and sparking economic growth. It’s also about protecting the health of our children for the future. These social and environmental benefits can be realized while dramatically improving operational profits.

Social motivators for green buildings include encouraging sustainable business practices, supporting the domestic economy, creating a sense of community and increasing worker productivity. Reducing energy consumption and reducing water consumption are also very important drivers for green building.

The green building industry has shown the world that sustainability is profitable, and that profitability is sustainable.

LEED for Homes Awards Spotlight: Paseo Verde

Published on 28 Aug 2015Written by Fleming RobertsPosted in LEED

USGBC honored seven outstanding home builders, developers and projects that have demonstrated outstanding leadership and innovation in residential green building by awarding them with prestigious LEED for Homes awards.

Award Category: Project of the Year

Winner: Paseo Verde, Jonathan Rose Companies / APM

This year’s project of the year is truly a modern marvel and represents a real focus on transportation access as a strategy in sustainable building and design. Paseo Verde, a LEED Platinum mixed-use, mixed-income development, is situated directly adjacent to Philly’s SEPTA Regional Rail Line at the Temple University Station, which is the fourth busiest stop in the city and is a five-minute ride from the city center.

Paseo Verde was designed by Wallace Roberts & Todd and developed by Jonathan Rose Companies and Asociacíon Puertorriqueños en Marcha. MaGrann Associates were the LEED providers and energy modelers on the project. Urban Engineers provided site development engineering services. Other members of the Paseo Verde team include CSA group, David Chou & Associates Inc., Pennoni Associates, and Domus, Inc. Together, they created the healthy living environment that some are calling “the most important green building development in Philadelphia.

Paseo Verde was constructed on a vacant lot that was nearly the size of a city block. The five-story building totals 200,000 square feet and has 120 affordable and market-rate apartments as well as 30,000 square feet of retail space that houses a community technology center. The building, which is the first LEED Platinum ND development in the western hemisphere, is surrounded by three LEED for Homes and one LEED for Homes Midrise Platinum buildings.

Paseo Verde, which translates to “green walk,” provides a healthy living environment for residents through sustainable practices, as well as energy efficiency cost savings. While any project of the year must be more than covering the bases on energy, water, waste, etc.—this building goes well beyond. The blue roof feature can hold up to 20,000 gallons of rainwater, which is slowly released through a drainage system. The building features solar panels, efficient mechanical systems, ENERGY STAR-rated appliances and fixtures, low- or no-VOC paints and primers, and formaldehyde-free materials to enhance indoor air quality. The building also has a fitness center, a business center, a community garden, and ground-floor retail.

One of the most important features, though, is the 52 affordable units available for those who earn less than $68,000 per year, and can pay as low as $300 in rent.

Major snaps for those involved in this smart and savvy development for revitalizing real estate in a community that needs it, and providing a comfortable and efficient home for many who may not be able to afford it otherwise.

USGBC gets ready for Greenbuild 2015 with Sec. of Navy Mabus

Published on 19 Jun 2015Written by Marisa Long Posted in Community

The National Capital Region of USGBC and Informa Exhibitions, the owner and operator of Greenbuild, was honored to host Secretary of the U.S. Navy Ray Mabus at a luncheon celebrating the Greenbuild International Conference & Expo coming to Washington, D.C., this November.

USGBC President Roger Platt took a few moments to introduce Sec. Mabus, who has long been a powerful voice for the role sustainability plays in how we can secure our country and better protect those who defend it. His participation in this exciting D.C. event is a strong reminder of how important government and military are to the green building movement.

The luncheon also featured remarks by USGBC CEO and Founding Chair Rick Fedrizzi and USGBC-NCR Board Chair Chris Ashworth, and Sec. Mabus was honored with a USGBC Leadership Award.

Greenbuild, the nation’s largest conference and expo dedicated to green building design and construction, is aptly themed ‘Monumental Green’ for 2015. Each year, 20,000+ attendees and 600 exhibitors from across the green building sector, spanning commercial and residential professionals, architects, building owners and operators, students, advocates and educators come together for the conference. This year Greenbuild is taking place from Nov. 18-20 in Washington, D.C.

Green Schools National Conference: One voice, one movement

 

Published on 30 Jan 2015Written by Rachel GutterPosted in Center for Green School

At last year’s Green Schools National Conference, USGBC and GSNN called upon all who were assembled to speak with one voice and act as one movement. They have spent the last 11 months living that promise and learning that when we speak and act as one community, we accomplish so much more.

The Center for Green Schools at USGBC has teamed up with the Green Schools National Network (GSNN) to make this fifth annual Green Schools National Conference the best yet.

Since 2010, GSNN has hosted the preeminent convening of green schools thought leaders and champions across the nation, connecting educators, non-profits, corporations and elected officials to advance our shared mission. This year, the Green Schools National Conference will be powered by USGBC and its award winning events team, best known for growing the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo into the largest green building event in the world, drawing 20,000-30,000 attendees to the platform annually.

GSNN and USGBC comprise a powerhouse team to amplify one voice and grow the conference into a force for change.

Join them in Virginia Beach, VA, from March 4-7, for the most collaborative and inspiring Green Schools National Conference yet!

Together, renew the commitment to speak and act with one voice and one movement. Why? Because this is our children’s future and we only get one chance.
