This presentation will provide an overview of the issues surrounding operational and embodied energy in buildings.  We’ll review the environmental impacts of building energy use and demonstrate how architects and engineers can work together to reduce and even negate those impacts.

Mike has demonstrated expertise as an architect and technical leader on a variety of technically complex healthcare, higher education, and laboratory projects infusing sustainability strategies – big and small – throughout the design process.

He also champions our firm’s commitment to the AIA 2030 challenge and other key industry metrics.
