Sponsors Luncheon Briefing: Beyond Green: High-Performance Projects, Programs and Products

High-performance buildings are healthy and productive places to live and work, cost-effective to operate and maintain, and good for the environment. Best of all, they are attainable today. At this educational briefing, winners of Beyond GreenTM High-Performance Building Awards will present selected projects that describe challenges and opportunities. The case studies, which represent a wide variety of building types from across the country, address the successful integration of sustainability and energy-efficiency with cost-effectiveness, safety and security, accessibility, historic preservation, and aesthetics.
