Green Building Tour

You are invited to attend the sixth of a series of free, public tours of certified green buildings here in Houston.  The tour will take place on Monday, August 18, 2008, every 30 minutes from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the American Heart Association, near the West Loop South at 10060 Buffalo Speedway, Houston, Texas 77054.  Please go to www.houstontx.gov/mayor/leedtour.pdf  for more details and a map. Light refreshments provided.

Green buildings save owners and users money with greater energy efficiency. They are better for our environment with more re-use of material. Ultimately, they foster a happier and healthier workplace for employees. To help us along this path, the City of Houston has put together the Mayor's Green Building Advisory Council in partnership with companies that have led the way in green building and achieved certification of their facilities according to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) green building rating standards.  The objective of this group is to share experiences including cost/benefit business cases and key learning with others to help accelerate green building across the city.

We very much welcome your participation in this event and your interest and support for green building efforts across Houston. For more information on the Green Building Tour please contact Steve Stelzer at 713-535-7508 or e-mail at steve.stelzer@cityofhouston.net
