Earth Day Weekend P3 Podcast Rewind: Whitney Ward

In honor of Earth Day this weekend, we are doing a P3 Podcast Rewind to our episode last winter with Whitney Ward, associate principal at VCBO.

On this episode, Steve and Whitney discuss how she works to help people push their buildings to be LEED approved. She also discusses her role in the new law building on the University of Utah campus and how she uses renewable resources to create sustainable buildings. Whitney speaks on the building trends and where she sees sustainable sustainable building going in the future, specifically the WELL building standard. Remaining optimistic she talks about how improvement in building is always necessary and how important it is that the public stay involved in this process.

Listen and be inspired!
