UPC Green Building Tour: Presentation Center, Tuesday 3/20 1:00 p.m.
- Join us Tuesday, March 20th, for our second Urban Planning Coalition Green Building tour. This tour will be held at the Presentation Retreat & Conference Center in Los Gatos. This tour will feature the sustainable architecture and green aspects of the Presentation Center’s LEED Gold Certified Welcome Center.
For those who attended the Adobe Systems’ Green Building tour, this tour will provide an interesting comparison between a new building created to meet LEED certification standards and an existing building that was retrofitted to meet LEED standards.
Space is limited: If interested, please email Brandi de Garmeaux at upcresponse@... to reserve a spot.
