The Rivers Casino in DesPlaines, IL is one of the greenest casinos in the United States.  The LEED certified Casino achieved points in numerous categories including EA Credit 5 – requiring post occupancy M&V. Presenters performed the post occupancy measurement and verification (M&V) for the Casino a year after occupancy.   During this presentation, we will review the objectives, findings, and actions taken from the M&V process. The Casino will provide their perspective on the process, challenges and overall benefit of the building’s performance.

Presenters include:
