Det skal I lave

San Francisco is a hotbed of innovation and the commercial buildings in this vibrant tech neighborhood are no exception. Did you know the UN has issued an Emergency Call-to-Action to the building industry to rapidly reduce our carbon output? High-performance commercial buildings are leading the way.

We meet at a beautiful public atrium with sculpture, paintings, and big indoor trees. We’ll cover some green building basics then visit several exemplary LEED Platinum green buildings, learning as we go. We'll stop at a number of pleasant green spaces and secret mini-parks where you'll see some wonderful public art. You’ll learn about the sustainability features of our beautiful, new Transit Center as we enjoy our lunch among trees on an adjacent roof-top plaza.

Then it's off to Salesforce Tower and some fun in their branded environment including, giant art video installations, photo ops on a genuine Ducatti, interactive games, mascots, swag, and more. You'll get a first-hand taste of this purposeful, fun-infused tech company culture and learn why their commitment to sustainability is considered their secret sauce. Finally, we'll say goodbye at the stunning, new urban oasis, Salesforce Park, but not before stopping by my all-time favorite high-rise or, perhaps, taking an optional gondola ride.

I’ve lived in SF and worked downtown since falling in love with this city more than three decades ago. Excited by the continuous innovation in commercial green building, I earned my LEED green building professional accreditation in 2004. As a small business entrepreneur and design professional serving clients in the green building industry, my journey has been informed by carbon reduction and fostering sustainable behavior. I’m currently a green building mentor/consultant at a downtown community center, one of my many volunteer roles over the years with the U.S. Green Building Council. I’m active with the local Living Future Network (ILFI) and serve on a mission-aligned nonprofit board. I have been immersed in all things green for more than 15 years and have good news to share. Join me for an interesting and fun time!

Her skal du være

We will walk approximately .5 mile through San Francisco's busy downtown tech neighborhood, the East Cut. In a 4-5 block area near Mission St. and Fremont St., we'll visit a minimum of 5 LEED Platinum green buildings, going into most ground floor lobbies and stopping frequently at lovely little secret parks that locals know, hidden among the towers. Includes a visit to San Francisco's tallest building and concludes at its newest major park.

This is a fabulous tour that provides in-depth knowledge about green buildings - and covers the what (are they), why (driving factors), and how (building/construction process). It's also a great way to see San Francisco. Candice is a very knowledgeable professional and passionate about the topic. She's easy to connect with and enjoys sharing with others.
