Green Building Education Seminar

LID - Low Impact Development in Houston

Tuesday, September 22, 2015
6 p.m. - 8 p.m.
Green Building Resource Center
1002 Washington Avenue, Houston 77002
In partnership with the Texas Gulf Coast Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council

What is being done to mitigate flooding in Houston?  Why do many design professionals prefer LID infrastructure?  Part of the reason is its lower costs to install, it works with nature instead of against it, and it treats stormwater as a resource instead of a waste product.  Stormwater management is the vital function that serves to mitigate flooding that happens all too frequently along the Gulf Coast, and this panel will discuss some new tools being deployed.

Join us for a presentation that will educate you about LID principles, construction and maintenance technologies, alternative strategies that can make a significant difference to the status quo, and some of the award winning projects already installed in Houston.

AIA & USGBC CEU's available.
