BASE LECTURE: Green Buildings: Achieving Success Through Financing, Entrepreneurship, and Community Engagement.

BASE PRESENTS: Green Buildings: Achieving Success Through Financing, Entrepreneurship, and Community Engagement.
Friday, Dec 12, 5:30pm
Bainbridge Public Library – 1270 Madison Ave N Bainbridge Island, WA 98110

“The buildings in which we live, work and play protect us from nature’s extremes, yet they also affect our health and environment in countless ways. Patterns of development, transportation infrastructure, building location and design have direct and indirect influences on human health, solid waste, water and air quality.

As an alternative, green buildings are gaining momentum as environmentally responsible and resource efficient structures, finding the balance between homebuilding and the sustainable environment. However, successful green building implementation and management depends on the cooperation of engineers, architects, designers, contractors, entrepreneurs, clients, community, and financing agents.

Join us for a conversation with three leading experts in the sector and learn about local and national initiatives, technologies, and market trends.”
