The True Cost of LEED -- A Keys Panel Discussion and LEED Platinum Tour

  • February 18, 2017
  • 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
  • Key West City Hall, 1300 White Street, Key West, FL 33040


Registration is closed

A frequent question about green building is about its cost. From historic restorations to regenerative buildings that give back more than they use, LEED has proven to be well worth the cost. Learn from three green-building experts through three different case studies of what was saved by planning ahead and integrative design. Then take a tour of what is tracking to be the first LEED Platinum building -- the City Hall -- in the Keys. 

This event is worth two GBCI and AIA continuing education units.  

Check out this special offering from the Keys Branch of the USGBC South Florida Region, and make plans now to come for the presentation and tour, and spend the weekend in beautiful Key West!
