Green RI 2019

IIDA NE Providence City Center, AIAri, and RIASLA will once again join together to host the 2019 Green RI Sustainable Product Showcase on May 14, 2019. This year we are excited to announce a wonderful new venue; The WaterFire Arts Center. This space mixes industrial rawness with modern elements and features an open floor plan allowing all vendors to be together in one space. Companies producing earth-friendly building materials set up shop to display their latest and greatest products for industry members to view. In addition to exploring the tradeshow floor, attendees have the opportunity to attend CEU presentations, network with peers, and learn about the latest innovations regarding sustainable products from various vendors.

The event also includes an Earth Day sample collection so attendees have an opportunity to fill up a box (or three!) as they conquer their spring cleaning of their material library and donate unused/unwanted sample materials at the event!

DESIGNING FOR WELLNESS, presented by Chris Schaffner (Principal and Founder of The Green Engineer, Inc.)

We spend a majority of our days inside, so buildings should be designed and operated to support our wellbeing. A client looks to building/site designers and builders as the experts in providing this outcome. Third party certifications like WELL and LEED provide a framework for incorporating sustainable and healthy design for effective results. One example is EMD Serono’s project Sagamore – the first WELL Gold certified building in the US under the New and Existing buildings rating system, and LEED Platinum certified office.  1.5 ASLA CEU CREDITS
