The program will consist of presentations, panel discussions, and Q&A sessions. The following questions are intended to organize the discussion:
(1) Are innovative green buildings in use measuring up to their targets (e.g. energy, water, IEQ)?
(2) What role do occupants play in the discussion of building performance?
(3) What can we learn from buildings in use to improve best practices?
(4) How can successful strategies be replicated at a larger scale?
The schedule for May 11th is posted below.
