Greenbuild, the world’s largest conference and expo dedicated to sustainable design and construction practices, was held in San Francisco from November 12 – 16, 2012. MSKTD’s Director of Sustainability, Landon Chapman, LEED AP, was among the more than 30,000 design and construction professionals who participated in the outstanding educational sessions, specialized workshops and networking events. Chapman attended numerous sessions including Environmental Analysis and BIM; Logistics of LEED v4; Integrative Design Process and LEED; and LEED v4 – Tools and Resources.
Understanding the LEED for Healthcare Rating System was another session that particularly piqued the interest of MSKTD’s HealthCare Group. Chapman is sharing his insights on the subject via a two-part, in-house presentation. MSKTD looks forward to continuing to share our knowledge and expertise with all of our clients. But our healthcare clients may find this to be of particular interest in 2013!
