California, Massachussetts, New Jersey, and other states and cities are mandating that new and reconstructed K-12 schools be either LEED certified or built to "high-performance" standards. At the same time, many colleges and universities are demanding LEED certification or the equivalent, and many are "greening" their entire campuses. This is an update on the latest activity in greening educational facilities of all types.

Our Panelists:
Ronald Fanning, FAIA, founder/CEO of Fanning/Howey Associates, an Ohio architectural/engineering firm (ranked 26th among A/E firms in the U.S. in BD&C's 2004 "Giants" survey) that does 100% of its work in K-12, with particular emphasis on "high performance." Ron is president of the Council of Educational Facilities Planners Intl (CEFPI), a major membership association for K-12 schools, and is a nationally known advocate for high-performance (i.e., sustainable) schools.
Robert J. Kobet, AIA, is president of Sustainaissance, a Pittsburgh-based consulting firm specializing in sustainable practice. Bob is also heavily involved in high-performance schools and is chair of the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED for Schools Application Guide Initiative. He holds a BArch degree from the University of Cincinnati and an MS in Sustainable Science from Slippery Rock University. He is a past member of the AIA Committee on the Environment (COTE) and the CEFPI Committee on Sustainable Design.
Mark Maves, AIA, is an SVP with SmithGroup, based in Washington, D.C. He is an active member of the Society of College and University Planners (SCUP), the AIA Sustainability Task Force, and Vice Chair of the USGBC's LEED Committee for Campuses and Multiple Buildings (i.e., college/university campuses and also corporate campuses).
