About the Existing Buildings Operations + Maintenance Educational Series
Do you live, work, learn or play in an existing building? If so, this series could be for you.

To most people, “green building” connotes sustainable construction practices, but we can have a much greater impact on the environment if we focus on the 98 percent of buildings that are already up and running.

Property owners, managers, and engineers are at the front lines of improving building operations, and this series will go deep on the methods and benefits of implementing sustainable management practices for your property and for your bottom line. Each program will start with technical overviews of the issues and will be followed by practical how-tos and stories from management professionals who have "been there, done that."

Special thanks to our Venue Sponsor CBRE!
