Title: Sustainable Collaboration
Post by: Michael Stack on April 06, 2011, 02:10:38 AM
I am hoping to expand my horizons and do more work and collaboration outside of the United States.  My experience is with the LEED rating system from BD+C and BO+M. 

The main market sector I work in is healthcare which is one of the most difficult for the LEED rating system due to its high energy usage and 24 hour-a-day operations.  My most recent project was an 80-bed NICU which was the largest in the United States when it opened.  This project achieved LEED-Gold which was the first such project in New England to achieve that standard.

I wish to apply this knowledge and experience to projects being designed in India and would like to collaborate with a firm with little to no healthcare experience to create a partnership to pursue some of the healthcare design projects currently being put out to bid.

If you have a simple sustainability question of would like to explore partnership for future projects, please contact me or reply to this post.

Regards,
Mike Stack

Hi Mike,

We too specialize in Healthcare architecture and are moving into getting our buildings green certified. In India we have our own certification "GRIHA".

It would be nice to exchange notes.
