REGREEN Implementation Workshop

REGREEN® is the nation’s first and most comprehensive green residential remodeling program. The program is based on the REGREEN Residential Remodeling Guidelines©, a set of sustainability best practices that emphasize green product selection, team integration and whole-systems thinking.
The REGREEN Implementation Workshop addresses the industry-specific challenges interior designers face when renovating a client space. Building on foundational knowledge from the REGREEN Guidelines, the workshop employs faculty-led instruction and team charrettes to prepare designers to identify, evaluate and implement strategies to green their projects.

Stelmack, Allied ASID, LEED AP BD+C, sustainable design consultant at Inspirit-llc, contributing editor for Green Building Advisor, LEED faculty, and co-author of Sustainable Residential Interiors.
