AAMA’s Western Region to Host Q&A on Green Globes Rating SystemNovember 19th, 2013 by DWM Magazine
The American Architectural Manufacturers Association’s (AAMA) Western Region plans to host a webinar featuring a question-and-answer session on the Green Building Initiative (GBI) Green Globes® Rating System. The webinar will be moderated by Erin Shaffer, GBI consultant, and will be held Tuesday, December 3, from 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. (Pacific Time).
The Green Globes tools consist of a web-based program for green building guidance and certification that includes an onsite assessment by a third party. Backed by customer support, Green Globes offers streamlined and affordable tools for use in advancing the overall environmental performance and sustainability of commercial buildings. The program has modules supporting:
• New construction (Green Globes for New Construction);
• Existing buildings (Green Globes for Continual Improvement of Existing Buildings); and
• Healthcare buildings (Green Globes CIEB for Healthcare).
Green Globes tools focus on energy, water and use of life-cycle assessment to reduce the overall impact on the environment, as well as on reducing the overall operational cost of buildings.
In addition to the Q&A, the webinar will feature an overview of AAMA’s FenestrationMasters™ program from Angela Dickson, AAMA’s marketing manager, as well as a Joint Product Category Rules Task Group update from Rich Walker, AAMA’s president and CEO.
The webinar is free to all AAMA members, as well as AAMA Certification Program participants on the West Coast.
