Brad Nies, BNIM, Elements Director (Sustainble Design Consulting Division)
Saturday, November 8 | 9:00a - 9:50a
So what really is green architecture? What qualifies a project to be in that category? When will green design become, simply stated, good design once again? Is this LEED rating system working for us right now and are there other alternatives? We will present and discuss some new technology being used in the professions today and where to find other options. What does the organization of Emerging Green Builders and the USGBC really do for the professions and the environment and how do I join?
Brad Nies from the KC architecture firm of BNIM, a leader in the region with sustainable design, will talk about these issues with us and would love to hear what studentsí ideas and thoughts are on these topics today. Participation is welcome in this session.
