In partnership with American Institute of Architects-St. Louis
As an architect for 45 years, Bob Berkebile, FAIA, is recognized repeatedly for outstanding sustainable design. He continues to blaze “step-lightly” trails in energy-conservation green building and regenerative design and construction. Berkebile describes the next stage of green building design and construction as “regenerative” where buildings give back. Regenerative buildings produce more energy and water than they use and manage all waste on site.
Join us on October 18 to listen to Berkebile share his views on what’s next for green building and the LEED Green Building Rating System, as well as what tools and resources are most beneficial when pursuing regenerative design and construction. Living Buildings, One Planet Community, and REGEN, USGBC’s tool to move beyond LEED Platinum, will be discussed.
Ten years ago, Berkebile was the keynoter at USGBC-Missouri Gateway’s first meeting. Bringing Berkebile back to help celebrate our 10-Year Anniversary, we look forward to what’s next for green building and the organization.
