In partnership with the Texas Gulf Coast Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council

Concrete is a durable, but energy intensive building material.  What's next?

Lionel Lemay will discuss new strategies for the environmental impacts of concrete on the built environment, transparency reporting with Environmental (and Health) Product Declarations, and Corporate Sustainability Reports, as well as proactive approaches to natural disasters regarding policies, design methodologies, and construction technologies within the context of the updated LEED version 4 rating system.  Lionel is a professional structural engineer, LEED AP, and Construction Specifications Institute member, and chairs the American Society of Civil Engineers Concretes and Cementations Materials committee.

Barry Stiles will discuss an alternative local pervious paving product and how it will aid in storm water quantity and quality improvements including retention and detention capabilities.  He is the creator and founder of TrueGrid, a system of interlocking permeable matrix that when overlaid on a gravel substrate and filled with gravel or turf will hold rainwater.

Patrick Thiel will discuss an alternative type of concrete chemistry and deployment, and its environmental footprint benefits.  Patrick, working in the cement industry over 8 years, is General Manager of Ceratech, which boasts of a carbon-neutral hydraulic cement.
