Owners of LEED certified projects both private and public have invested much more than their and the public’s resources. They have a special passion for life best experienced in person. This event is a chance for interested parties to meet these pioneering individuals, with the hope that they’ll build with LEED. The next seminar will be May 2008. Speakers are Stefanie Sunderland of the Northside LEED homes; Bob Lape, Architect/Facilities Director, Kenton County School District, on Twenhofel LEED school in Independence, KY and Susan Chapin and Jeff Chamot of Neyer Properties' LEED Keystone Parke commercial development at I-71 and Dana Ave. Contact Chuck Lohre for an invitation [email protected]

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
