New Member Welcome Event
A special New Member only event for members who have joined the Chapter within the last six months!The U.S. Green Building Council - Missouri Gateway Chapter welcomes new members to come socialize and get acquainted with USGBC - Missouri Gateway! Chapter officers, past and present, will be on hand to share the chapter's history, highlight member benefits & opportunities, and answer questions. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet fellow new members while enjoying a light breakfast.
After new members have learned about the Chapter, they will tour Christner's LEED Gold office space and learn about the office's sustainable design, construction and operation features.
In moving its office after 25 years, Christner chose a gut rehab of the top floor of an existing office building in order to consolidate staff on one level, conserve resources, and improve communication between project teams. The office redesign allowed Christner to demonstrate the advantages of sustainable design, and includes features such as:
Clear view corridors that link principle spaces and allow light to penetrate deep into the space. Everyone enjoys natural light and 96% of workspaces have direct window views.
Occupancy sensor controlled lighting, a "paperless" initiative and the reduction of paper storage capacity by 50% (from the former office), and the selection of materials that contain low Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC).
In the entrance lobby and primary public spaces, the existing concrete floor was ground and polished in lieu of an applied floor finish, eliminating energy associated with the manufacturing and shipping of floor materials.
The textured wood paneling in the lobby and elevator core made of 100% recycled Elm from a dismantled dairy barn.
