Join the U.S. Green Building Council - Illinois Chapter's North/Northwest Branch for
Curran Corporate Headquarters Panel Discussion, Where Black is Green and Tours.

The LEED Gold Curran Corporate Headquarters was completed in 2008.  Now, almost 5 years later, the design and construction team will discuss the Integrated Design process and how those decisions not only changed the design, but how that design has performed over time.

Prairie restoration tours will be conducted before the panel discussion. Michael Curran, Co-President of Curran Group, will demonstrate the porosity of the permeable asphalt after resealing, and Direct Design will conduct tours of the interior spaces.

The panel discussion will focus on how building systems were evaluated for sustainability as well as the resulting fiscal impact so well informed business decisions could be made. After discussing the integrated design process the panel will move to building performance over the past 5 years including durability of high performance lamps, low flow fixture performance and actual energy performance vs. design.
