Mitchell Swann, PE, MDC Systems® Principal, is giving the Distinguished Lecturer Presentation to the ASHRAE, Roanoke Chapter, on March 13 at the Blue 5 Restaurant on 312 2nd Street. This gathering is a joint meeting with the Roanoke Chapters of the American Institutes of Architects (AIA) and the US Green Building Council.
Mr. Swann’s presentation is entitled “Green Design and Sustainability – Undefined Success in a Defined World.” The explosive growth of green buildings and sustainable design can be largely attributed to an increased demand for better performance and a better building environment. As these expectations become the norm, there exists a greater likelihood of a misalignment between expectation and reality — and in that misalignment there is risk. Mr. Swann’s program focuses on green design risks and effective strategies to mitigate these risks.
