July 17th: Free GI Workshop for Developers

7-17-18 CW, SWWT, & MMSD GI wkshp for developers_FLYER.jpg

After our January green stormwater opportunities workshop for developers and allied professionals, we heard a clear call for more detail on what it takes to get green stormwater practices incorporated into projects - cost-effectively - in the Greater Milwaukee region.

This second, more advanced workshop will address stormwater compliance costs, with  a detailed look at the costs in our area for green stormwater practices such as permeable pavement, rain gardens / bio-infiltration, and green roofs.

This workshop will feature a discussion panel with manufacturers and suppliers of green stormwater treatment systems, along with a presentation on the ongoing stormwater regulations and practices cost study by project contractor, Birchline Planning LLC.

If you’re involved in development and redevelopment projects and your company is already on the leading edge of green stormwater practices, or if you want to take it to the next level, this workshop is for you.

All of those involved in the real estate development / redevelopment process are welcome:

  • Developers
  • Builders
  • Landscape designers
  • Architects
  • Engineers
  • Planners
