DECEMBER LUNCH MEETING
Green Globes is an online green building rating and certification tool that is used primarily in Canada and the USA. Green Globes was developed by ECD Energy and Environment Canada, an arms-length division of JLL. Green Globes is licensed for use by BOMA Canada (Existing Buildings) and the Green Building Initiative in the USA (New and Existing Buildings). There are Green Globes modules for new construction/significant renovations, commercial interiors (i.e. Office Fit-ups), and existing buildings (offices, multi-residential, retail, health care, light industrial).
Jerry Yudelson will be giving us a brief overview of the Green Globes system, and how it can be applied to projects in our area.
