    Jason Kliwinski unravels LEED IV Greenest New Code

    in Business

    The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design rating system is designed to make your building safer, thriftier to operate, and to keep your employees less poisoned and thus more productive.  Now LEED has published a new set of green designs that go straight to the core.  Host Bart Jackson talks with architect and environmental expert Jason Kliwinski about the new materials to be used in buildings that will improve the quality of worklife for us all.  Ask yourself, “Do I always feel sleepy about 2 p.m.?”  And, Is my building’s air intake vent right next to the loading dock – where the trucks sit with their engines running?”  Hmmm.

The app shows how color enriches our lives, and it turns what is a difficult process for some into something that is truly satisfying and fun. Just a few of the accolades it has received have been being named a “Product of the Year” by This Old House Magazine, a “Can’t-Live-Without” app by Architectural Digest and a “Must-Have Resource” by Lonny Magazine. 


    Amy is the author of Can’t Fail Color Schemes, a national bestseller on interior and exterior color ideas for the home.

It was also a Next Generation and Best Book Award finalist. After the success of her first book, Amy wrote Can’t Fail Color Schemes: Kitchens and Baths.
