for Current Rating Systems—Analysis & Comparison
TIME: 6:00-8:00 PM
SPEAKER: Rich Mazzuca and Gary Keclik,
Sustainable Environments by Design, LLC
LOCATION: Chicago Center for Green Technology, 445 N. Sacramento Blvd.
This seminar focuses on the redefined, triple bottom-line relationship among societal, financial and ecological aspects of the built environment. It is organized to provide useful insights to those responsible for the design, construction, management, operation, leasing, and purchase or sale of real properties and associated transactions. Presenters Rich and Gary will provide an overview of sustainability rating systems and present ways in which their practical application can benefit ROI for building design and real estate professionals or property owners. We will explore how a building’s value depends upon relationships between the costs of construction and maintenance and the income it produces; including market forces and effective cost reductions that also benefit the environment.
