The two are from Westlake Reed Leskosky, an architectural firm based in Cleveland, and will discuss their firm's efforts in green design and LEED building.



They will address their integrated design approach, which results in buildings with a reduced operating footprint. Their goal is to design healthy, long-lasting interior environments.



Westlake is a managing principal at WRL. Green is a LEED accredited professor with 30 years of experience in new construction and renovation projects.
