Last week, Stephen Turner sat on the Industry Innovation Panel in the public forum​ on “Building Rhode Island’s Workforce with Energy Efficiency Programs” hosted by the Rhode Island Energy Efficiency and Resource Management Council (EERMC) to discuss how energy efficiency is contributing to RI's economy through job creation and energy savings.

By engaging in dialog about adapting to a changing industry in light of new policies and incentives, and training and retaining new and incumbent workers, we begin to understand the challenges and opportunities at the intersection of workforce and energy.

Map

Come join us on Thu, January 17, 2019, 5:30 PM – 6:30 PM EST, for a free training and tour of the Brown University Watson Institute of International and Public Affairs building.

The project consisted of renovating the existing building and the new construction of an addition at 280 Brook Street. This mixed-use facility is 31,000 square feet. The existing wood framed structure was renovated into a three-story plus mezzanine building and a steel framed, curtain-walled, three-story plus penthouse addition, housing offices, meeting spaces, a large classroom, cafe, and a three-story multi-function atrium space.

The expansion project was designed and constructed to meet the University’s requirements that the project reduces energy use by at least 25% (31% realized) compared to current energy codes. The project will comply with the requirements of LEED v4 BD+C New Construction and Major Renovation and is currently pursuing LEED-NC Silver certification.
