    HISD Update: LEED schools in the 2009 & 2012 bond programs

    HISD was a pioneer in Green Schools with a commitment to build all of their schools in the 2009 and 2012 bonds to at least LEED-Silver. Join Kimber White, from the Energy & Sustainability office at HISD, to hear the current status of their LEED schools. Hear the background of why HISD committed to LEED, and the benefits they feel they've achieved because of that decision.

    About the Event
    Join us for an interactive tour of our modern manufacturing facility. We’re a 37-year-old manufacturer of demountable walls located in Farmers Branch. With 55,000 square feet of manufacturing space, we are one of the largest secrets in modular architecture right in your backyard! In addition, we are uniquely located within a few mile radius from a majority of our raw material providers.  Come meet us and our representatives from key suppliers who will help share our very integrated and successful partnerships. We are excited to share tangible examples of our mission of being responsible stewards of our environment as well as promoting our local economy by buying as many local materials as possible. 

    During the tour, we will offer hands on demonstrations of how our products are built and packaged. In addition, we will provide a demonstration of relocating a portion of our showroom to fully reveal exactly how this can help end-users reduce their environmental impact through the elimination of construction waste usually caused during change management efforts. Allowing the architecture to readily adapt to the users’ needs as opposed to forcing the users to adapt to the architecture provides for a more engaged and effective workforce.

    We look forward to sharing our story with you soon. Finger foods and a full bar will be provided for your enjoyment.
