Building Better: Driving the Triple Bottom Line With Design
Managing facilities for the long-term benefit of employees, the company, and its community is the real essence of corporate sustainability. When executed successfully, sustainable projects can pay for themselves—not only in terms of energy and water reductions but also when considering how a healthy building can positively impact its people (e.g., higher productivity, reduced absenteeism, etc.).
In this presentation, Daniel Lessing, LEED AP, CEM, Client Leader at BHDP Architecture, will share a step-by-step process on leading a sustainable project—from establishing owner project requirements (OPR) that tie in with environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals to measuring success and return on investment in the project’s final stages. Using BHDP’s new building project with Vega Americas as a case study, Daniel will demonstrate the application of this methodology on a real-time project and offer tools for the audience to use on future projects.
