As the business voice for Alberta architects, the Consulting Architects of Alberta is committed to empowering green architecture in Alberta. “Building Green” is both a cost effective and noble goal, but those benefits can be difficult to pitch to many clients and professionals.
As a way to encourage and equip architects to counsel their clients towards green building strategies, we are holding the CAA Pitching Green Workshop, presented by Edmonton architect Shafraaz Kaba. This workshop will focus on case studies and best practices, as well as group discussion of what does and doesn’t work when trying to “pitch green”.
When: 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM, June 26 2019
Where: Edmonton Construction Association, 10215 176 Street NW Edmonton, AB T5S 1M1
