Summer Coffee Break Series - Green Building Certifications:
KICK OFF - Green Building Material Standards & Certifications with Hannah Roth
Green buildings are better for people, the environment, and the bottom line. They steward natural resources and lower our environmental impacts. Plus they are healthier places for building occupants, which is especially important as everyone has a heightened awareness of healthy spaces.
During construction, renovation, repurposing, demolition, or occupancy, buildings use energy, water, raw materials, generate waste, and emit emissions. This has prompted the creation of green building standards, certifications, and rating systems aimed at reducing the impact of buildings on the natural environment through more sustainable design principles.
In our Summer Coffee Break Series, we will explore a variety of different certifications every other Friday, 10:00 - 10:30 am starting May 28 through September 24, 2021. Join your Green Buildings Are Better community for a quick conversation on current green building certifications. See the full list of events below!
Hannah Rae Roth was a Lecturer in Architecture and Environmental Studies at Washington University in St. Louis until mid-2020. She provides a deep focus on the environmental impact of building materials and architectural finishes, the regional nature of materials, and their vernacular use. She is an active member of the Missouri Gateway Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council's Board and Education Committee, where she has created several programs on architectural building materials. She has in-depth knowledge of the design process, decision making process, contracting, purchasing and construction processes for large complex buildings such as hospitals and digital fabrication facilities. Ms. Roth received a Master of Architecture (M.Arch) degree from Washington University in St. Louis.
Decode ways to measure and evaluate building materials and architectural products for environmental sustainability.
