This upcoming free webinar from The Gordian Group, in partnership with Sightlines and the National Institute of Building Sciences, will address the funding challenges faced by those in K-12 and higher education today. The webinar, “ Create & Maintain High Performing Education Facilities,” will be held Wednesday, June 22 at 2:00 pm ET/11:00 am PT.
The 2016 State of Our Schools: America’s K–12 Facilities study, a joint publication of the 21st Century School Fund, U.S. Green Building Council and the National Council on School Facilities, reveals that the U.S. education facilities are severely underfunded and thousands are in need of repairs. Budgets are falling short of providing healthy, safe, educationally appropriate and environmentally responsible facilities and campuses. This webinar will address the funding challenges faced by those in K-12 and higher education today.
Presenters Henry L. Green, Hon. AIA, President of the National Institute of Building Sciences; Jay Pearlman, Vice President of Sightlines; and Dwayne Pierre-Antoine, Operations Director,
Great Lakes, at Gordian, will share resources (among them, the Institute’s National Clearinghouse for Educational Facilities website), case studies and insights on how best to plan, design, prioritize and manage building repairs and updates to maintain high-performing education facilities.
Attendees will learn:
- The current facilities conditions in U.S. K-12 and higher education systems.
- How these conditions affect health and performance, and impact the environment.
- The characteristics of high-performing education facilities.
- How to access benchmarking analyses and cost data to decide what projects need to be addressed today.
