The show explores advanced techniques and metrics in the green building industry through interviews with a wide array of respected industry and community leaders. Tasha’s leadership in the education of green building concepts has also been instrumental in the creation and execution of Energy Design Resources (EDR)’s Integrated Design Workshop. Tasha led a team at AEC to design a two-day workshop for college students to take an in depth look at integrated design. The workshop, which was first held in October 2010 and will be offered again in 2011 to an even broader audience, introduces cutting edge industry concepts, tools, strategies and technologies for inter-disciplinary students to design a truly sustainable zero-net energy building using the EDR Integrated Design Process. During her time at AEC Tasha has been the Project Manager for the University of Colorado, Boulder working with the University and design team members to LEED certify new construction and major renovations on campus including the new LEED Gold CU Visual Arts Complex. As a young professional, Tasha has shown incredible leadership in educating design team members, owners, university students, and the broader community on sustainable design practices for the built environment.
