Date: Tuesday, December 11, 2007
Time: 11:30 am - 1:30 pm
Location: AIA East Bay, 1405 Clay Street, Oakland

Join us for a behind-the-scenes look at two case studies of green projects that have emphasized green O&M practices since opening their doors. Bring your property management team and come hear about:

Experiences training property management staff and residents
Challenges, choices and experiences with green cleaning products and O&M techniques
How green products and systems choices have held up
Tools and resources for greening your O&M practices

Case Studies:
Folsom Dore Apartments, a Citizens Housing Corporation property, provides 98 units of affordable housing for low- and very low-income residents with a variety of special needs. The project was completed in February, 2005, and was certified LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver by the US Green Building Council in October 2006, making it the first San Francisco affordable housing project to receive that level of recognition.

The Plaza Apartments, developed by the Public Initiatives Development Corporation, a non-profit subsidiary of the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency, provides 106 studio apartments for the formerly chronically homeless of San Francisco. Conard House provides on-site support services, including 5 full-time Case Managers, a full-time Psychiatrist and Nurse as well as a part-time Nurse Practitioner. The Plaza Apartments was completed in December 2005. It is a pilot project for the Redevelopment Agency’s “Green and Sustainable Guidelines” program, as well as being a grantee of Enterprise Foundation’s “Green Communities Initiative.” The Plaza is also LEED registered, and anticipates receiving a “Silver” rating.

AIA East Bay is located in downtown Oakland at the NW Corner of 14th and Clay Streets.
