Two champions of green building in health care – Perkins+Will Architects and Kaiser Permanente – will share their lessons learned and priorities for the future of green building in health care. An emphasis on case studies of design and research projects will bring their experience into a “real world” context. What is Kaiser Permanente’s sustainable buildings research agenda. What is Kaiser Permanente learning from facing the operational challenges in implementing green building strategies. How a big firm is using the GGHC and what has been the outcome after two years. How the GGHC and LEED complement one another in practice.
