CaGBC is hosting a series of Innovation Forums this fall that will provide an in-depth exploration of the nexus between optimizing high performance buildings and the occupant experience.
High performance buildings must balance and optimize each component of the building, but don’t often fully accommodate the occupant influences in the equation. This human dimension of building design is critical to achieving not only our energy goals, but wellbeing and productivity goals, and reduced operations and management loads. This forum will showcase innovative products, services, and market solutions that deliver maximum building performance while achieving occupant satisfaction.
