Hello Michelle:
Here is another Green Conference to forward to VGBN members.


ps: I've known Jim Brew since the 1980's when he was a principal of a Duluth, MN, architectural firm.... and have touched base with him lately at RMI where he is living his professional dream.

The Present and Future Greening of the Multifamily Industry

James Brew, Principal Architect, Rocky Mountain Institute
Wednesday, April 29 - 2:15 p.m. – 3:45 p.m.

James S. Brew, of the Rocky Mountain Institute is a Principal Architect with the RMI Built Environment Team and has over 28 years of sustainable design experience in historic, commercial, institutional, and residential architecture.

The opportunity for re-evaluating our investment in energy efficiency and green design is upon us. Whether dealing with a new development or existing assets, there still remains an opportunity for improving net operating income and retaining tenants in a competitive real estate environment. This session will introduce the latest trends in the green building revolution as well as the business decisions that companies must contemplate in order to remain viable in light of the sustainability movement.
