Green Building Lecture: Scottsdale’s Annual Green Building Lecture Series will be back in full swing come September first.
The Green Building Lecture Series is free and open to the public, and address sustainability issues such as environmentally responsible and healthy building practices and energy efficiency.
This will be the 12th lecture series event about green building hosted by Scottsdale in order to inform and educate building owners, developers and builders, and design professionals on sustainability practices.
The lectures are held on the first Thursday of every month from September 2011 to June 21012, excluding January, with the first lecture for the 2011-2012 year titled “What Happens When Green Becomes Code?”
The International Green Construction Code (IgCC) was recently adopted by the Scottsdale City Council and is the core of the city’s Commercial Green Building Program. The lecture in September will educate the public on IgCC and how it will make “going green” easier to obtain for developers of multi-family and commercial housing.
Other lectures in the series will include topics on reusing rainwater, cooling and heating options for the home, green projects around the Valley and water saving techniques.
The Green Building Lecture Series will feature practitioners and experts speaking on the green topics each month to address key issues pertaining to sustainability and going green.
The monthly events will take place at the Granite Reef Senior Center in Scottsdale, from 7 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
