California and San Diego are leading the way on setting up policy context
for green buildings, healthy and walkable communities, clean transportation, and other important climate change focused initiatives.

This September learn what the San Diego green building community is doing to move the sustainability needle! 2017 speakers will include almost 50 local change makers who are driving some of the most innovative initiatives locally and nation-wide, ranging from sustainable buildings to healthy communities and climate change oriented programs.

Additionally, the event will offer networking opportunities with over 200
individuals representing a broad spectrum of expertise: architecture, construction, design, planning, landscape architecture, strategic planning, business, nonprofits, and more.

Don’t miss an opportunity to network and learn what it takes to move the
needle towards a sustainable built environment!

The two specific sessions covering LBC Materials are the following:
  • Here & Now: Our Living Building Challenge Studio and JUST Certification
    • DescriptionThis presentation will present lessons learned from the Miller Hull’s Seattle Studio tenant improvement which was recently Petal certified through the ILFI’s Living Building Challenge Program. Navigating energy reduction through lighting and “red list” material selection management were key design processes to reach petal requirements. Miller Hull’s certification as a JUST firm was also a requirement and the presentation will cover lessons learned during the certification process we well as positive cultural shifts resulting from the certification. Transparency is a key thread in this presentation both from an organization’s cultural standpoint as well as implementation in the built environment.
  • Sustainable Solutions Measured by Quality of Space: A Focus on Human Purposed Design 
    • DescriptionThe Palomar Maintenance and Operations Building is 28,000 square foot facility that serves as the heart of the campus in providing upkeep and repair for the 252-acre main campus. The Palomar community recognized a need for space optimization and becoming an integral component to campus. In addition, the collaborative design-build team was challenged to provide a facility that would set the precedent for Palomar College in high-performance building design and construction. Sustainable solutions were successfully implemented by reallocating confined budgets towards a holistic design. Innovative design strategies, such as thermal chimneys, rainwater harvesting, daylight harvesting, and a PV shade canopy, took on multiple uses to create an environment that promotes wellness and collaboration and has a positive impact to the larger campus community.
