Net Impact BGI: Built Environment
Net Impact BGI hosts another community social, this time focusing on the Built Environment. Our focus for the evening will be around the Seattle 2030 District and how one company in particular, Sellen Sustainability, has been at the forefront of sustainable design and construction. Our guest Dave Walsh, who consults with Sellen Sustainability, will discuss the cutting edge work that Sellen Sustainability is doing, why the company separated from Sellen Construction, and how Sellen Sustainability serves as one of the building industry leaders in the Pacific Northwest for the Seattle 2030 District. This groundbreaking public-private interdisciplinary work in downtown Seattle brings building owners, managers and tenants together to collaboratively reduce the environmental impacts of building construction and operations.
As always, this event is open to the public and we encourage you to bring a classmate, mentor, co-worker, and/or friend. This is yet another great opportunity to build community with people in and outside of the BGI network. These events are opportunities to learn, present questions, network and socialize.
