  • A hotbed of crazy ideas that created LEED and the sustainability movement. 
  • How did building trust as an architect allowed Lance to write policy for green building across the nation?
  • What you need to know to create a green oasis for community projects?
  • A spectacular moment of humanity and how architecture and sustainability work to bring everybody together. 
  • Push the envelope and raise the bar by finding balance with these tips.

  • Lance speaks about Fitwel, and various healthy building programs, and ideas that incorporate healthy options for employees.

“All of that was sort of born out of a common group and challenging ourselves about the future. I think it’s been super important continuing to build those relationships and continuing to challenge our thinking.  It’s where we come up with that next big idea and find the right people to help us implement it — relationships.”

– Lance Davis
