Presentation by Bradford, Coalson covers carbon reduction

Bill Bradford, P.E., and Mathew Coalson, E.I., LEED® Green Associate™, discussed the pursuit of a carbon neutral built environment during an Oct. 21 webinar for the American Council of Engineering Companies of Florida and the Florida Engineering Society.

Bill and Mathew joined Chris Gray, Ph.D., P.E., the chief technical officer for RENU Communities, to present “Decarbonizing the Built Environment and Improving Property Value.” They talked about two case studies — an office park with 15 single-story buildings totaling 272,000 gross square feet and a multifamily complex with 300 apartment units totaling 300,000 gross square feet — and how to reach energy goals and reduce carbon at these facilities.
