The Building Green Council asked the High Desert Design Council to put together a panel of experts for the NW Green Building Industry Summit and Living Green Expo.  

HDDC founder, Mindy Lyman, took on this challenge and has come up with a unique presentation.

Saturday, October 17th, beginning at 8:30 am, registrants will have the opportunity to attend Sustainable Applications: A Green Renovation (A Virtual Makeover)

This seminar's goal is to educate professionals by focusing on the application of sustainability rather than general information about sustainability.  Experts on sustainable building, lighting, materials, landscaping, interior design and green certifications & incentives will evaluate this 1940's stucco home

and offer their sustainable solutions and renovation ideas in a way that demonstrates real solutions attendees can use in their own projects.  Experts will evaluate and provide suggestions to actual renovation problems with real budgets in mind.  Topics will cover "best bang for the buck" solutions, the latest trends in green building and what Central Oregonians have been putting to use.  This new twist on the traditional seminar will show real world solutions to green renovation problems and provide attendees with ideas and answers they can use.

Materials: Jorden Swart, Brilliant Environmental Building Products
Landscape: Chelsea Schneider,
