About this Event

Exploring the intersection between Design and Construction in Schools 

One of the main tenets of Green Building is Integrated Design.  How does that look in school construction?  Join us for a panel discussion of the opportunities and challenges  with the intersection between Design and Construction of a school.  Hear from the architecture, construction, and building commissioning sides about things that have worked well and things that can be improved.  Notes will be taken in an effort to develop this into a white paper on Integrated School Design.  

This is part of our Green Schools Leadership Coalition series: "Intersections," in which we're exploring the intersections between the 4 areas of school construction: Design, Construction, Operations, and Occupants.
