Plans for the RoGBC’s high performance, multi-purpose green building continued as member companies gathered to hear updates and provide input at an information session on Wednesday. Steve Borncamp provided an update for the RoGBC’s project. The aim for the project includes developing an exemplary building that the RoGBC will use as its office, exhibition and training space for green building solutions, a library for sustainable construction, and a reading room and café open to the public. Space will be made available for auxiliary offices and meeting facilities that our members will be able to use according to their needs. An offer of office space for incubating new green tech businesses would be included in the design and strategic plan.

Hannes Guddat of soap architektur GbR, delivered a comprehensive presentation on the many design and technology options available for sustainable buildings and his experience with demonstration projects. He explained their work with the Technical University of Darmstadt award-winning “Solar House” and a “Plus Energy Home” demonstration building whose energy efficiency and green energy production created a net-positive contribution of energy.

Further meetings will be announced on our website, this blog, and in our members’ newsletter. Next steps include solicitations from member companies for project planning guidance and completion of the next version of the project description document.
