USGBC Arizona presents an overview of Parksmart, the sustainable rating system that measures sustainable practices for parking structures. Parking structures are not eligible to receive LEED certification, so Parksmart provides an avenue for owners and operators to systematically target sustainable strategies for an environmentally responsible approach to their facilities and operations.

It also provides an avenue for those successful owners and operators to be recognized for their environmentally responsible facilities and operations.

This presentation will be given by three accredited Parksmart Advisors with different perspectives:

Michael Schmitt, AIA, LEED-AP represents DFDG Architecture, a Phoenix based architectural firm, well known for the design of parking structures. J. C. Porter represents Arizona State University, Parking and Transportation Services, who have committed to Parksmart Certification of their large campus operation, which includes many parking structures. Dawn Rogers represents Coreslab Structures, a Phoenix based fabricator and erector of precast concrete components common to many parking structures.

Attendees will learn:

  1. Definition of ParkSmart and how does it relate to USGBC.
  2. An overview of the Parksmart Certification Standard and its Measures.
  3. Various viewpoints on why Parksmart is important.
  4. How and why one should consider becoming a Parksmart Advisor.

Presentation will begin at 12 p.m.
