It requires the audience inside the minds of political and military leaders, into the every day life of civilians, and also to the battlefields: through the trenches of northern France as well as the war’s lesser-known fronts—Russia, Serbia, Turkey, Palestine, the Arabian deserts—where millions of soldiers perished or suffered horrific wounds to flesh and mind, on intervention of the united states of america that aided end the tragedy.

The Business of Green Building – HOSPITALITY Panel Discussion with HYATT, Starwoods Hotels & Resorts|St. Regis

April 26th, 2013

The Business of Green Building – HOSPITALITY Panel Discussion with HYATT, Starwoods Hotels & Resorts|St. Regis
Event on 2013-05-15 09:00:00

 

GreenBuildingWorldwidemagazine

Plan to join us for the first annual Hospitality & Facilities Discussion “Business of Green Building” Sustainable Buildings and Energy Discussion on Wednesday, May 15th, 2013 at The Hippodrome Building – NYC.  Three (3) AIA Credits.


FOCUS– HOSPITALITY Industry: The New York hotel and facility marketplace is on fire, with record numbers of new properties coming on line, under construction, and in planning phases. The hospitality industry is continuing to define and measure sustainability in connection with increased interest in sustainability on the part of guests and other stakeholders. This panel will address ways to operate facilities according to the idea of a "triple bottom line," (financial benefits, environmental benefits, and customer benefits) which embodies profitable operation combined with attention to the people who use and work in the hotel and a focus on careful stewardship of resources. A key issue underlying all sustainability programs is one of measurement, given the many different standards and mandates already in place. Our speakers will include representatives from leading hotel organizations, as well as energy/green experts and a major funding/driving force for sustainability in NYS.

MODERATOR:             Steven Winter, Founder, Steven Winter Associates

 

PRESENTERS:          The Hyatt

                                       Starwoods Hotels & Resort|St. Regis

 

HYATT:  Manny Rosa, Director of Capital Planning and Projects  – Hyatt is large enough to have global reach and influence, yet small enough to be collaborative and responsive in the approach taken toward working with hotel owners to maximize the value of their investment.

They are focused on enhancing their brand preference by continuously improving the performance of existing hotels and successfully expanding the presence of their brands in select markets worldwide. Smart growth and development is fundamental to achieving these aims.  As a company, they thoughtfully add hotels in locations throughout the world.  Their team works closely with developers to ensure their success through innovative and efficient design, operational excellence, and effective sales and marketing strategies.

More than 50 years of hospitality expertise in smart architecture and design.   These stand out among the reasons why owners and developers put their confidence in Hyatt. Yet above all, their core strength emerges from a philosophy of authentic hospitality delivered to each and every guest 24/7 around the world.

As of June 30, 2012, Hyatt Corporation's worldwide portfolio consisted of 492 properties.


THE ST. REGIS|STARWOOD HOTELS & RESORTS:   Michael Coppola, Director of Engineering  –  Seeking to bring the timeless elegance of St. Regis to the world’s most exclusive addresses, Starwood Hotels launches the St. Regis brand with five new hotels, each a distinct expression of the original’s abiding legacy. The St. Regis Aspen Resort and The St. Regis Houston debut first, followed by the conversion of The Grand Hotel Rome, The Beijing International Club and The Carlton Hotel, Washington D.C.  In the heart of Manhattan, a refined atmosphere and gracious service rank The St. Regis New York among the top hotels. In 2011 it received the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Award for the 18th consecutive year.

Starwood is committed to doing more to consume less and caring for our planet. Their  environmental policy addresses six areas of opportunity, and initial worldwide focus is on energy & water with commitment to reducing energy consumption by 30% and water consumption by 20% by the year 2020 (from a 2008 baseline).  These goals are just the beginning of an ongoing journey toward environmental sustainability; they also focus on guidance for minimizing and reducing waste and emissions, examining their supply chain and enhancing indoor environmental quality. They take all of this on while maintaining the exceptional guest experiences they so proudly deliver.

They have worked together to set energy & water goals and establish a platform that will enable them to hit those performance targets.

TECHNOLOGY PRESENTER:

Capstone by RSP Systems: Presenting Technology – Capstoneis the world's leading producer of low-emission microturbine systems, and was first to market with commercially viable air bearing turbine technology. These award-winning systems have logged millions of documented runtime operating hours.

During Megastorm Sandy reliable Capstone MicroTurbines helped many vital facilities avoid rampant utility-power failures by producing non-stop power for venues including a data center serving the U.S. Department of Defense, a critical Red Cross shelter, a health care facility and a pair of Manhattan office buildings, among others. With news agencies reporting outages totaling over eight million electrical utility customers at peak, the Capstone microturbines played a role along the eastern seashore preventing power losses.

The Capstone by RSP Systems presentation will include the dynamics of the Capstone MicroTurbine and its benefit to the environment.

Date:               Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

Lee Sandlin Discussion & Book Signing

February 18th, 2013

Lee Sandlin Discussion & Book Signing
Event on 2013-03-07 16:00:00
Author Lee Sandlin will discuss his book The Storm Kings: The Untold History of America’s First Tornado Chasers on Thursday, March 7 at 4:00 p.m. at the University of Minnesota Bookstore in Coffman Memorial Union, 300 Washington Ave. S.E. Minneapolis.

Storm Kings is a riveting tale of the super cell tornado, and the pioneering scientists who helped change America. From Ben Franklin’s early experiments to “the great storm debates” of the nineteenth century, Sandlin shows how tornado chasing helped foster the birth of meteorology and the settling of the Midwest. Drawing on memoirs, letters, eyewitness testimonies, and numerous archives, Sandlin brings to life the forgotten characters and scientists who helped place a network of weather “spotters” across the country that eventually evolved into The National Weather Service.

Sandlin is the author of Wicked River: The Mississippi When it Last Ran Wild.

Sandlin will sign copies of his book following the discussion. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, or to order a signed copy visit www.bookstore.umn.edu/genref/authors.html.
