Resiliency and Sustainable Building
August 18th
Speaker: KC Bleile, Viridiant
“Resilience is the capacity of a community, business, or natural environment to prevent, withstand, respond to and recover from a disruption” according to the US-Climate Resilience Toolkit. Come explore resiliency standards, how we are currently incorporating resiliency into our buildings and further opportunities to design and construct resilient communities. This lecture serves as an introduction to the Science Museum of Virginia’s PrepareAthon on August 27, 2016.

Measuring to Manage Building Performance with Benchmarking
October 20th
Speaker: Sean Shanley, Viridiant
Austrian-American businessman Peter Drucker once said, “You can’t manage what you don’t measure.” In buildings, our typical measurement tool comes in the form of a hard to interpret black and white utility bill. Join us to learn how benchmarking buildings can help owners better understand opportunities for energy savings, catch maintenance issues earlier and benchmark their building performance against similar buildings.
