NJIT sustainability expert to discuss high performance schools at seminar
Date:10/29/2008

NJIT sustainability expert Deane Evans will provide an introduction to the basics of building green, high performance primary and secondary schools at a free seminar, open to the public, at NJIT. The talk, set for Nov. 5, 2008, at 3 p.m. in Kupfrian Hall, will include a review of the status of the NJ schools' construction program.

Evans, a registered architect, is executive director of NJIT's Center for Architecture and Building Science Research at the New Jersey School of Architecture.

At the talk, Evans will describe green buildings and their value to students, teachers and taxpayers. He will explain how to develop such structures in a cost-effective manner, outline how much it costs to build them now, plus delve into cost premiums.

Evans has more than 25 years experience in both the private and public sectors - in architectural design, construction technology and building performance. Prior to joining NJIT, Evans was vice president for research at the American Institute of Architects, Washington, DC., and founding director of a housing program at the US Department of Housing and Urban Development.

As director of the NJIT research center, Evans concentrates on high performance, sustainable buildings, particularly housing and schools. He co-authored New Jersey's 21st Century Schools Design Manual.
