Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design

Posted on Posted in LEED Buildings

Lohre & Assoc. will be sponsoring events at the Boulter House that allow potential owners and developers to meet LEED owners and developers of some of Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana's LEED and other energy and environmental design sites. The goal of these events is to help create a community of energy and environmental design leaders.

48 attended the event Friday, October 19, 2007, speakers were:
Andy Hueber: John Hueber Homes
The two homes on Observatory Road feature geothermal heating and air conditioning, light concrete to reduce heat gain, large overhangs to shade the patios, high insulation values, CO exhaust, sustainable wood uses, urban infill and native plantings. Hueber Homes is also working on two other LEED registered or certified homes (one received Silver Certification) in Hyde Park, Cincinnati. http://www.johnhueberhomes.com , 513-683-3080
Jack King: Elements IV Office and Warehouse
This commercial office and warehouse in Dayton, Ohio was completely renovated and LEED Interior Silver has been awarded. Interior tearout finishes and carpet were recycled. The final cost per square foot was nearly half of a comparable space. This building features underfloor electrical distribution, movable wall panels and the lower floor is built into the hillside. http://www.elementsiv.com , 937-918-1000
Craig Frye: Sanitation District 1
This complex in Fort Wright, Kentucky is a wonderful demonstration of every aspect of stormwater management. From the green roof to the final delivery of the runoff to the nearby creek, you can see how permeable concrete and asphalt contribute to the slowing of the water flow as it goes from roof top and parking lot, swale, wetlands, rain garden, through native plants, holding pond, creek, Licking River and on to the Ohio River. http://www.sd1.org , 859-578-6744
