Earlier this year, the Old Globe Theatre and San Diego Air & Space Museum have opened up their buildings as learning laboratories to the Green Assistance Program (GAP) through the San Diego Green Building Council with the goal of documenting and submitting all data required by the LEED certification process. Data is collected throughout the month and reported back at the monthly All Team meetings.
The U.S. Green Building Council's (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a voluntary green building tool that addresses the entire building lifecycle, recognizing best-in-class building strategies. Currently Balboa Park is home to three LEED certified Buildings. With help from our local chapter of the USGBC and community volunteers, two Balboa Park Cultural Partnership members are looking to join the LEED team in Balboa Park this year! This will bring us to the half-way mark of our Centennial goal of 10 LEED certified buildings in the Park!
With the energy and conversation still buzzing, it’s hard to believe the American Alliance of Museums (AAM) Annual Meeting and MuseumExpo ended over two weeks ago. Sustainability had a stronger presence this year than ever before! PIC Green* held a Summit on Sustainability Standards in Museums. The proceedings will be collected in a white paper to be published by PIC Green and the American Alliance of Museums.
