Affordable Water: Conservation and Reuse Tactics for Multifamily Projects
Lunch is included
Where’s the rain? This year’s low rainfall reminds us that water conservation is just as important as conserving energy. By implementing some simple water saving techniques, multifamily housing projects can cut costs and help protect our local watersheds.
In this meeting, Brent Bucknum of Hyphae Design Lab will present his work with affordable housing developers to identify water conservation opportunities in both existing and new construction housing projects. Brent is doing cuting edge work in this field, and you won’t want to miss his high-energy presentation!
Brent will be joined by Mary Lucero-Dorst from EBALDC who will describe EBALDC’s efforts to utilize greywater recycling as both a water and an energy conserving strategy.
Transportation Tips: There is no on-street parking at this venue. There is a parking structure across the street and there are several paid lots within walking distance. The venue is less than a 5 minute walk from the 12th Street Oakland BART station. For more info, see the AIA East Bay website.
A joint project of Build It Green and the Bay Area Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), the Green Affordable Housing Coalition, or GAHC, provides green building education, outreach, and policy advocacy to the Bay Area’s affordable housing industry.
The GAHC’s ultimate goal is to improve the lives of low-income families in the San Francisco Bay Area by increasing the supply of healthy and energy efficient affordable housing.
