Event Description

Join the USGBC Denver Metro Education Committee for a green building tour of Stanley Marketplace, a community of independently owned local businesses.

Leading the tour will be Bryant Palmer, the Chief Storyteller of Stanley Marketplace. He will explain the "Stanifesto" and vision behind the Stanley Marketplace. He will be joined by Marcel van Garderen, Vice President of WORKSHOP8, who served as the project and production manager on the Stanley project. Craig Karn of Consilium Design will also be present to discuss adaptive reuse, water quality strategies, urban heat island reduction, and overall sustainable landscape design practices.
