The Gaines Group Sustainable Architects – Career Chat

September 18 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm CDT


Exelon STEM Academy Career Chat - The Gains Group Sustainable Architects

Calling all high school aged students in the Chicago, Philadelphia, DC, and Baltimore area!

Interested in sustainability and energy efficiency? Green building design is the first step in creating, or renovating, our built environment to reduce energy use. In this interactive session, we’ll discuss Green Building Design and sustainable building methods – both conventional and unconventional. Learn what it takes to be an architect focused on sustainable design and how that translates from design through the build process. Also learn how we renovate existing buildings to reduce energy use through design.
