Joe Winters, a principal and specifications writer in HOK’s Washington, DC, office, will co-lead a seminar at the AIA Convention in Philadelphia. The presentation, “A Future of Green Codes: Advocating for Opportunity and Prosperity,” takes place Saturday, May 21 at 8:30 a.m.
Sustainability is changing the way architects approach their designs, but are you fully informed about the future of green codes? In this session, Winters and other presenters will share how architects can take advantage of the business opportunities in high-performance building design. The presentation will include a detailed discussion on International Green Construction Code (IgCC), including how and why it has been developed, how it is being used and what the future of this code will mean to the practice of architecture.
