First of all, let’s be clear.  San Francisco is a great city to visit and you could have any conference in the city and it would be a great time.  Having said that, my first GreenBuild Conference was a huge success and I can’t wait until the next one.  It’s always good to gather with like minded people to encourage you, refresh you and remind you that you are not alone.  Over 30,000 people gathered in the city by the bay to share their knowledge on the built environment.


Integrated Solutions Group is involved in LEED Consulting for various reasons but none more important than the fact it encourages an integrated design process.  As you can imagine, we believe in integration and the creativity that comes from working through a process as a team.  As you may have captured from our website, we believe there is power in the process of bringing together parts to create a whole.  Our services are varied but they all require a team approach that encourages each part to work for the better of the whole.


Green Building got a big start in the late 1990’s with the formation of USGBC and LEED certification.  While several things have been written, no one can argue that US Green Building Council has had a huge impact on the way we build buildings not only in the United States but around the world.  The latest revision of the LEED certification process is to launch next summer and I can’t wait to see how they are pressing the envelope in the built environment.

I did not leave my heart in San Francisco but I can’t wait to go back…
