Rocky Mountain Institute provided energy modeling, daylighting design, lighting design, material consulting and LEED advisor and reviewer support. Project will achieve the highest ratings with LEED, BREEAM, and the new German Green Building Standard (DGNB). These “green towers” will achieve over 55% carbon reduction (from prior usage), 50% energy savings, 67% heating savings, 98% demolition material recycled, and 74% water savings amongst many other sustainability metrics (fact sheet). Scheduled for completion in late 2010. Framework for a “Living City Block” Urban ReVision Principal in Charge Project Manager Led Rocky Mountain Institute team to oversee the development of a written framework for a “living city block”. Designed, led and facilitated a workshop of over 40 diverse leaders to help inform the framework. Framework became the basis for Urban ReVision’s “Living City Block” competition in Dallas, Texas.
  2. 2. James Scott Brew • Selected Experience City of Cambridge Energy Innovation Workshop Cambridge, Massachusetts Principal in Charge Community Energy Consultant Worked with Kendall / Barr Foundations ,Cambridge Energy Alliance, and MIT/Harvard professionals to design and facilitate a 3- day community –scale energy innovation workshop. Workshop was designed to develop the leading ideas to help drive a 50- megawatt peak load reduction in Cambridge’ energy use. Invited 60 leading individuals in the energy field from around the US to participate in the workshop. Cambridge has made significant progress from this effort. St. Mary’s Medical Center First St. Cancer Center Duluth, Minnesota Principal in Charge Healthy Building Consultant Oversaw the design and construction teams to help implement an aggressive healthy building/LEED and sustainability program for a new cancer center in northern Minnesota. SMDC is the first health care organization in Minnesota — and among the first 10 in the United States — to certify their 250,000 square foot clinic using the LEED Green Building Rating System, a nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high performance, healthy buildings. Our holistic approach to healthy building design included a view that healthy IEQ = healthy patients. To that end, the design construction process included avoiding the use of PVC, no/low-VOC and no-formaldehyde materials and finishes, high-efficiency air filtration, and superior daylighting and views for patients and staff. 2
