Upcoming event to give an overview of LEED rating changes
Ralph DiNola got into the green building movement on the ground floor.
He joined Green Building Services, a Portland firm that specializes in consulting on green building projects, in 2001. At that time, Green Building Services was bigger – by one employee – than the fledgling U.S. Green Building Council, which administers the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program.
DiNola worked for SERA Architects for two years, before joining Green Building Services. He became LEED accredited in 2002, two years after Green Building Services was founded.
These days, DiNola is a principal with Green Building Services and a USGBC LEED faculty member. He said he keeps tabs on each new change to the green building system.
On Thursday, he will be joined by other Green Building Services consultants for a presentation and panel discussion at AIA Portland. The event, “Uncovering LEED 2009,” will be held from 8 to 11:30 a.m.
They will give a comprehensive overview and analysis into the green building movement and, specifically, upcoming changes to the USGBC’s LEED rating system. The forum is designed for design teams, architects, engineers, building owners, facility managers and other professionals. [Read full article]
