One Day Left before High Performing Education Facilities Webinar

WASHINGTON – June 22, 2016 – (RealEstateRama) — There is only one day left to register for the free webinar, “Create & Maintain High Performing Education Facilities,” to be held Wednesday, June 22 at 2:00 pm ET/11:00 am PT. Hosted by the Gordian Group, in partnership with Sightlines and the National Institute of Building Sciences, the webinar will address K-12 and higher education funding and maintenance challenges.

The 2016 State of Our Schools: America’s K–12 Facilities study, a joint publication of the 21st Century School Fund, U.S. Green Building Council and the National Council on School Facilities, reveals that the U.S. education facilities are severely underfunded and thousands are in need of repairs. Budgets are falling short of providing healthy, safe, educationally appropriate and environmentally responsible facilities and campuses.

Presenters Henry L. Green, Hon. AIA, President of the National Institute of Building Sciences; Jay Pearlman, Vice President of Sightlines; and Dwayne Pierre-Antoine, Operations Director, Great Lakes, at Gordian, will share resources (among them, the Institute’s National Clearinghouse for Educational Facilities website), case studies and insights on how best to plan, design, prioritize and manage building repairs and updates to maintain high-performing education facilities.

Attendees will learn:

  • The current facilities conditions in U.S. K-12 and higher education systems.
  • How these conditions affect health and performance, and impact the environment.
  • The characteristics of high-performing education facilities.
  • How to access benchmarking analyses and cost data to decide what projects need to be addressed today.

To register to attend the “Create & Maintain High Performing Education Facilities” on June 22, to be hosted on The Gordian Group’s website, sign up now.
