Brainstorm Green – Green Buildings

One of yesterday’s panels was on Green Buildings. It included Michael Deane from Turner Construction, Clay Nesler from Johnson Controls, Frank O’Brien-Bernini from Owens Corning, Guy Geier from FXFOWLE Architects and Bill Valentine from HOK.

We were fortunate enough to get the chance to talk to Guy and Bill one-on-one in separate interviews, and get their thoughts on industry trends, best practices and the hurdles architects face incorporating sustainability into design (Guy’s answer may surprise you).

FXFOWLE is cutting-edge commercial interior design firm that has recently completed the National Audubon Society headquarters in New York, NY as well as SAP America’s headquarters in Newton Square, Pennsylvania.

HOK is also a commercial design firm and was recently named the greenest design firm in the country, based on total sales.
