Greenbuild 2010

We’re headed to the Windy City this November!

KRA’s Aelan Tierney will be in Chicago to lead a seminar about our Northeast Veterans Training and Rehabilitation Center at the 2010 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo on November 17.

The seminar, “A Net Gain for Social Equity,” will describe how the project team broadened the definitions of sustainability beyond environment and economics to include social equity. The panel will discuss the unique collaboration between two service/educational organizations, Veteran’s Homestead and Mount Wachusett Community College, as well as the technology that went into the project (e.g. 28 geothermal wells and over 8,300 square feet of photovoltaic panels).

Aelan will be joined by Neetu Singh from The Green Engineer, LLP, and Leslie Lightfoot, founder of Veterans Homestead.

We’re also going to be leading multiple workshops/seminars at BuildBoston this year. More to come on that later!
