What we're about

Meet local architects/building professionals/contractors and any/all others interested in discussing green architecture and sustainable design. Talk about finished/unfinished projects, materials/LEED certification, energy use and savings, and where to take form, space, and order next!

Green building increases the efficiency with which buildings use resources — energy, water, and materials — while reducing building impacts on human health and the environment during the building's lifecycle, through better siting, design, construction, operation, maintenance, and removal.

Gas Fireplace Construction and Safety Requirements

AIA San Francisco

Gas Fireplace Construction + Safety Requirements in Commercial + Residential Design This course provides information about contemporary direct-vent gas fireplaces, the different styles available, and the construction and safety requirements for incorporating them into a design project. Attendees will learn the environmental and efficiency benefits of a direct vent gas fireplace with the added safety of cool wall technology vs. a traditional wood burning and/or open faced fireplace. The presentation begins with the various fireplace models and continues through the product specifications, safety clearances, efficiency benefits, installation and design requirements including drawing details and sample applications. Slides will follow through the design and building stages in the order that a typical project would progress, allowing the architect and design professional to take a lead role in the successful design and installation of this element in the construction project.

Earth Action Initiative Conference

2475 Bancroft Way

Join the 2019 Earth Action Initiative conference for a day of art, food, community, and action! The conference will center around educational workshops and a Climate Art Experience. Workshops will cover a variety of topics ranging from nuclear energy to environmental justice. Importantly, all workshops will culminate in a direct action to take place on the day of, or shortly after the event. The Climate Art Experience utilizes art, food, and drink to convey climate science in an intimate and tangible way. In creating this interdisciplinary space, we aim to bring together groups that do not regularly interact, as well as to reinvigorate and inspire more impactful climate action. Please BYOC (bring your own cup) to help us minimize waste. Saturday 23 March 2019, 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM University of California, Berkeley 2475 Bancroft Way Berkeley, CA 94720 Free.
