The National Fenestration Rating Council will offer a tour in Tempe the evening of September 24.

NFRC attendees are invited to discover and explore some of the exciting sustainability initiatives and projects located in and around Arizona State University. This walking tour will take us by ASU’s LEED Platinum certified (plus other LEED certified) buildings, solar installations, and a variety of examples that comprise the integrated, university-wide approach to sustainability at ASU.

This walking tour will be led by Nicholas R. Brown, Ph.D. the campus director of University Sustainability Practices, Global Institute of Sustainability. His expertise lies in institutional sustainability; greenhouse gas emissions management; energy conservation; renewable energy; natural resources management; biodiversity conservation and he hopes to “refenestrate” the ASU campus and looks forward to meeting the expert fenestrators actively involved in NFRC.
