Keynote Speaker: Mark Lucuik from Morrison Hershfield
Mark has been involved in green buildings for over twenty years and has played a key role in the development of LEED in Canada. He has been a part of the industry as it has evolved from a tiny niche market dominated by passion to a mandated part of business; including owning, designing, and operating buildings and communities. Today, green buildings are at an interesting crossroads, with pressure from some circles to abandon LEED while others drive very hard to focus on only one part of a green building, be it durability, energy, or materials. Mark will present his personal perspective on green buildings, drawing from his professional and personal experience, including the loss of his own home to fire; and will include not only ethical drivers, but also real business motives that can help drive the industry to the next threshold.

BuildGreen Atlantic NL is presented by The Atlantic Chapter of the Canada Green Building Council.
