5:00 PM- 7:00 PM, United Way of Greater Cincinnati

A unique opportunity to learn about the recent LEED-registered United Way building renovation (LEED Cl v2009) and the operational benefits afforded by the LEED process. Also a great way to support a local charitable organization: the United Way of Greater Cincinnati.

 The building was erected in 1915 and is currently on track to receive LEED-CI (v2009) Gold Certification and will deliver over $150,000 annually in energy savings to the United Way.

 Learn about the process of the LEED system from representatives from the USGBC Cincinnati Regional Chapter, Green Building Auditors, Duke Energy, and GBBN Architects as they detail the steps taken to achieve a 55% decrease in energy usage and huge operational budget savings.

 The brief presentation session will be followed by a tour of the newly renovated facility with refreshments (small food and drinks).


  • Tony Yunkers (Architect, GBBN Cincinnati),
  • Carol Burwick (Research Analyst, Duke Energy), and
  • John Kirschner (President, Green Building Auditors)

 $5.00 of each ticket sold will be donated to the United Way’s annual campaign. Each attendee will also receive a certificate of attendance for use in self-reporting CEUs for GBCI, BOMA, IFMA and NAIOP.
