Bayer MaterialScience LLC’s EcoCommercial Building (ECB), a network of providers of high-performance building products and services, recently held the fourth annual ECB Executive Workshop, October 23-24. Presentations at the workshop addressed energy management, design, retrofit financing and transparency in building products.

“Once again, the ECB Workshop addressed relevant industry issues – real issues that we are dealing with – and allowed us to openly discuss those issues,” says Paul Bertram, director of environment and sustainability for Kingspan. “Each year, the workshop provides a dynamic exchange of industry trends and challenges that impact our businesses.”

“This year’s Executive Workshop generated conversations and ideas outside the agenda,” adds Julia Rubino, director of ECB North America. “It was our fourth annual workshop, and you could see how the event has evolved and relationships have formed over the years. Our members will continue to have discussions around this agenda to help solve problems and identify opportunities in their respective businesses.”

The complete list of presenting organizations at the fourth annual ECB Executive Workshop included Gensler, The Durst Organization, Kingspan, Resilient Floor Covering Institute, SmithGroup JJR, Deloitte, Johnson Controls, Green Campus Partners and Bayer MaterialScience.
