This week is the USGBC Rocky Mountain Green Conference. After learning about a bike tour for event attendees to different sustainably-oriented building projects in Denver, I had Clayton Bartzcak from Ambient Energy tell us a bit more about the event.. See below. Thanks Clayton! If you’re planning on attending Rocky Mountain Green, this might be something interesting to participate in:
Join us on the third annual USGBC Bike Tour of green buildings in downtown Denver!
Enhance your Rocky Mountain Green conference experience by joining us on a Bike Tour of exciting sustainable projects throughout downtown Denver! This is an enjoyable way to earn GBCI or AIA Continuing Education hours and get to know Denver at the same time. Don’t have a bike? Don’t worry, Denver B-Cycle has agreed to provide bikes for anyone that needs one for this tour so you’re covered! Participants are welcome to bring their own bikes as well.
The tour will begin at the B-Cycle station at 19th and Market. We will tour several diverse types of sustainable projects including residential, office, mixed use, and urban agriculture sites. Tour stops will include the Renaissance Stout Street Lofts, the Colorado Convention Center’s Blue Bear Farm, the Alliance for Sustainable Colorado’s newly renovated home at the Alliance Center, and the Union Station development area. We will finish off the tour with a rooftop networking happy hour event – everyone’s usually pretty thirsty after all the biking!
The tour will take place on Friday April 18th from 1pm to 5pm and is limited to attendees of Rocky Mountain Green. The regular conference educational sessions and speakers will take place on Thursday April 18th at the Embassy Suites in downtown Denver. Each year, the U.S. Green Building Council Colorado convenes a diverse audience of built environment professionals to learn from each other and spread the good word of green building. The Rocky Mountain Green conference provides third party reviewed green building education sessions and is produced by U.S. Green Building Council Colorado staff and volunteers.
