Do you have a passion for responsible Design?
The NH Environmental Guild is an authorized committee of the AIANH. It is a consortium of architects, builders, educators, building performance specialists, bankers, real estate brokers, and other advocates involved in design, development, funding and construction of the built environment. The Guild is the NH chapter of the AIA Committee on the Environment (COTE).
The Environmental Guild works in many ways to promote education and high performance practices for buildings, grounds, and communities through outreach programs such as:
Integrated Design/Integrated Development Conferences [IDID]: We have built a loyal fan base by convening six inspiring conferences throughout the state since 2003. IDID workshops have featured keynote speakers such as Ed Mazria, Dayna Baumeister, John Todd, and David Orr. IDID VII is tentatively scheduled for 2013.
Compelling Case Studies: We are developing funding opportunities to support creating a series of high quality filmed case studies which document our most energy efficient buildings. These studies will be electronically adaptable for various audiences and available for wide distribution as an educational tool in conjunction with speakers and advocates for high performance buildings and communities.
Join The Guild!
This is an open invitation for those with a passion for responsible design to join the Guild. Our meetings include serious discussions of pressing environmental issues, and light-hearted musings of whatever pertinent issues are brought to the table. Chocolate and local wine samples are added incentives at some meetings. An added bonus is the ability to add to your resume, “Environmental Guild member since 2012”.
The Environmental Guild usually meets the first Tuesday of each month at 4:30 at the Jordan Institute, 49 N Main St, Concord. If you are involved in any way with building planning, construction or renovations and are interested in promoting environmentally responsible practices, please consider attending.
The Guild welcomes input from a wide spectrum of professionals. For further information, or if you wish to attend for the first time and want to check the meeting time and date, contact David Ely, Chair, at 603-487-5252 or by email.
