Join us on Thursday, March 21st for The Wild Center’s 5th Build a Greener Adirondacks, a day-long conference and vendor exposition designed to educate local builders, contractors, architects, code officials and engineers about the latest in current green building practices and products.
In the past, BAGA has focused on the energy and cost savings of building green. This year we will shift the conversation to the qualitative aspects of green building: health, wellness and comfort. One of our breakout session will concentrate on teaching how to market and use social media to attract new customers to your business.
New this year, thanks to our partnership with U.S. Green Building Council Upstate, we plan to offer GBCI and AIA continuing education credits.
Featured speakers include Kevin Stack of Northeast Green Building Consulting, who will facilitate a conversation on the opportunities and responsibilities builders have in the Adirondacks in meeting the challenges posed by intensifying global environmental change, and Mike Phinney of Phinney Design Group who will focus on Health + Wellness of Green Design. In addition, there will be extensive break-out sessions with powerful examples of local and regional success stories.
