Paladino has attended every Greenbuild since the expo launched in 2002. As Greenbuild 2018 takes over Chicago, our team is also delivering two must-see presentations. Vice President of Technical Services Brad Pease will present  The Missing Piece to Your Next Wellness Design, and Senior Consultant Nash Emrich will present Experiential Proof: The Business Case for Biophilic Design.

CEO Tom Paladino and Director Kim Pexton will be there to connect with cohorts and to engage in some mutual inspiration about the future of the green building, resilience, and human wellness movements.

Want to bump into Paladino at Greenbuild? We’ve provided our schedules to make it easy!

Brad Pease

I am excited about this year because there are several themes that go beyond LEED, such as:

  • The business case for wellness: In previous years wellness topics focused on the WELL rating system. This year, sessions focus on arming practitioners with what they need to know to get their clients to put wellness strategies into practice.
  • Occupant engagement in net zero. In previous years, we geeked out on the technology that could get us to net zero; this year I am seeing how design choices can influence behavior that in-turn creates opportunities for lower tech and higher impact strategies.
  • The return to a focus on design. Gone are the sessions that focus on LEED as a driver for a project; we are now moving in a direction where LEED is the back-check and design returns to center stage to address carbon neutral/resilience/wellness/social equity issues. This is fundamental to our approach at Paladino.

Nash Emrich

At Paladino we talk about operating at the intersection of Business, Design, and Environment. At Greenbuild 2018, there will be opportunities to examine this concept with topics covering green bonds and workplace wellness. I’m also excited about  a different combination of perspectives at the conference – the intersection of Technology, Humans, and Nature.

Technology continues to evolve rapidly and deepen its integration into our lives. The built environment is no exception. I’m interested to learn how electric cars can solve renewable energy and grid demand issues; how virtual reality can influence design; and how plug loads can improve energy performance. Alternatively, there is research showing how buildings can biologically impact human emotion, cognitive function, and wellbeing. Even our social interactions within the project team and as occupants are important considerations as a factor in real estate development. Lastly, the role of nature as an inspiration and functional component of our spaces will be central to the conversation, including exploring immersive biophilic interventions and establishing the connection between biophilic design and owner values.

These three topics – digital and electric technology, study of human interactions with buildings and each other, and the role of nature in the built environment – will be some of the most important to understand in the coming decade. The collision of these concepts within real estate will present a challenge, but the abundance approach shows that there is tremendous potential to positively influence the evolution of the relationship between technology, humans, and nature.

Tom Paladino

I’m excited about the introduction to the timeless power of nature; and the emergence of leadership, corporate culture, and values to the Greenbuild conversation. Stories, stories of leaders, and stories of how the best leaders find the connection to nature and the human spirit through the built environment are so essential to success.
