How to succeed in a sea of shifting market demand and increasing regulation

Local development is increasingly moving toward more deeply sustainable, resilient buildings. Brad Liljequist, Zero Energy Program Manager at McKinstry, will share notable trends that are early indicators of a shifting marketplace. An interactive, moderated discussion will follow with a panel of highly influential real-estate managers in the Puget Sound region.

Get ready for a lively discussion to better understand how your customers think about sustainability:

  • Are current, aggressive codes enough to meet tenants’ demand for sustainability?
  • Is there ROI for investments in sustainable design and human health factors?
  • How do GHG emissions inventories and carbon mitigation strategies factor into project financing and leasing? Are potential carbon fees and taxes impacting how projects are developed?
  • Is anyone using alternate leasing structures, such as MEETS, to provide incentive for more sustainable features in development?
  • How do incentives for improved energy performance drive significant changes in project development?
