#GIS14_Green


Environmental concerns mean changes for many maintenance facilities. Learn creative, cost-conscious and forward-thinking practices that you can use, no matter how sophisticated your operation.

You'll hear practical solutions and creative ideas from experts and your peers. Several superintendents will discuss unique implementations, including a living roof structure that helps the facility blend into the landscape and a "zero waste" system that provides insight into reusing and recycling.
