NEXT ‘DEMYSTIFYING GREEN BUILDING’ SEMINAR IS MARCH 10

February 25 Program Moved to March 24

February 22, 2008

[HARRIS] – The next “Demystifying Green Building” seminar will be held on Monday, March 10 in The Carrus Institute at The Center for Discovery in Harris from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.  Entitled “Demystifying Green Building – A Healthy Community” this two-part program will explore areas of green and sustainability that are relevant to planning, zoning and code enforcement.

 

This is the next program in the Demystifying Green Building series sponsored by The Center for Discovery and Sullivan Renaissance.  A healthy breakfast will be served by table chefs from The Center’s Thanksgiving Farm.

 

Part I: 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. – “Green Buildings and the Code Official” will examine the relationship of the NYS Uniform Fire Prevention and Building Code with the administration and enforcement of those codes in relation to emergent “green” and “sustainable” systems and buildings.  This portion is approved for in-service credits through the NYS Department of State.

 

Part II: 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon – Exploring opportunities for energy conservation and sustainable development through zoning and land use practices that incorporate conservation and restoration; LEED standards and environmental review committees.  This portion can be used to meet training requirements for planning and zoning boards.

 

The seminar entitled “Getting it Done!” previously planned for February 25 has been rescheduled to March 24 at 8:00 a.m.  Peter Berman of the Ruby Group in Goshen, NY is the keynote speaker.  He brings a wealth of experience in “green building” and has offered to share his expertise.  For more about Peter Berman and the Ruby Group, visit: http://www.rubygrp.com/.
