GBBN Green News: Plogsted Presents At Conference & Updated LEEDer Count!

Plogsted Presents At Green Buildings and New Technology Conference

Recently, GBBN's own Andrew Plogsted spoke at the Green Buildings and New Technology Conference hosted by Real Estate Communications group (RECG) held in Indianapolis. The focus of the conference was to educate Indiana developers, owners and real estate agents in the areas of sustainable site development, contracts, energy savings, green sales and green design.

Andrew's presentation on Green Design was geared toward developing a project around the principle of the triple bottom line -- Economics, Environment and Social Equity. "It takes a real understanding of all three ingredients to make a successful sustainable project," said Plogsted.

Bill Brown of Browning day Mullins Dierdorf Architects, a long-time leader in sustainable design in Indiana, spoke alongside Plogsted. Dan Moriarity of CSO Architects who heads up one of the largest green firms in Indianapolis also participated in the presentation.

GBBN's Alan Warner has been invited to be a guest panelist at RECG's next conference. Stay tuned!


GBBN Architects is proud to announce that the firm closed out 2008 with great news from the USGBC -- a few more GBBNers successfully passed the LEED accreditation exam. The numbers are in, and GBBN is up to 25 LEEDers – that’s 31% of the technical staff. According to a BuildingGreen Survey completed last July, the average for large firms is 28%.

Congratulations to those who have already passed the exam, and good luck to those planning to take it in 2009!
