CALGreen Workshops at Fireman’s Fund, March 3, 2011

 The U.S. Green Building Council’s Redwood Empire Chapter presents two talks on “Working with the New CALGreen Code”, on Thursday, March 3, 2011 at Fireman’s Fund in Novato.

 Architect and green building educator, Wally Geer, will discuss changes in the residential building code in a morning session and cover the commercial building code changes in the afternoon session.


These workshops will give builders, architects, designers, planners and others an overview of the new statewide green building codes and standards, including an understanding of the Tier 1 and 2 mandatory and voluntary measures. Time will also be given for questions and answers.

 The morning residential session is from 10:00 am-12:30 pm; the afternoon commercial session runs 1:00 pm-3:30. Each workshop is $50 at the door; discount for Chapter members and early registration through February 18. A special Chapter membership promotion of $65 includes admission to the morning or afternoon workshop and a one-year USGBC Chapter membership ($40 savings).
