Panelists will discuss why they are transforming New York City's built environment by demanding high performance building design for their projects. While high performance building and renovation are becoming more mainstream, the challenges and conventions of building in New York City are still daunting. This panel of high performance building clients will discuss what has worked, what hasn't worked, and what has been learned for different building projects. In addition, based on their practical experiences, panelists will examine what types of market place and government policy would help to make high performance building New York City's "new normal".
Additional panels will be held at the Center for Architecture on October 19th (with Developers) and December 6th (Policymakers). Event details will be posted below.
