About the Panel Discussion:

Research continues to show tenant satisfaction and demand as an ever-increasing driver for healthy buildings, and stakeholders in the A/E/C industry are tapping into this interest. We, at Jordan & Skala Engineers, understand the plethora of information and options regarding green building programs. Therefore, we’re excited to have hosted a live panel discussion — “FitWel, BREEAM, NGBS & 45L: Optimal Pathways and Potential Synergies” — at the 2022 BUILT National ESG/Sustainability & Multi-Housing Summit, hosted in Denver, Colorado, to provide an overview of these popular pathways towards more sustainable buildings.

This session discusses some of the premier green building programs, noting their mission in the built environment, defining their overlap and differentiators, and steps to offset first cost when voluntarily going above code in sustainable initiatives.

Jordan & Skala’s Principal, Regina Young, moderated, while the panel consisted of key leaders in the green program space, including our very own Sr. Manager of Sustainability, James Brauer, Fitwel’s Business Development Manager, Carter Ahlbrandt, BRE’s (BREEAM) Director of Operations – US, Breana Wheeler, and Home Innovation Research Labs’ (NGBS) Vice President, Sustainability, Michelle Foster.

I found the conference exceedingly well-planned, right-sized, and the schedule and events thoughtfully curated. It was a terrific use of my time, even being far from home, and I am certain it will pay dividends in many ways in the future.

This was a timely discussion given that sustainability is a big topic of conversation in the real estate industry. It was great to hear what some of the leaders in the space are doing and learning more about the challenges and solutions to various problems.

Being able to share insightful data and understand how industry peers are handling this rapidly growing priority was invaluable from a learning opportunity standpoint.
