Emerging Professionals (EPs) are the energetic and dynamic leaders of tomorrow’s green building movement. GBA’s Emerging Professionals Committee enables individuals early in their sustainability careers to be a force for progress within their communities by providing a forum for networking and education. The EP committee is hosting a happy hour and tour of Fulton Commons.
Fulton Commons is a co-working office, kitchen incubator, and artist studio space located in Manchester on Pittsburgh’s North Side. A rehabilitated school building from the 1940’s, the space is designed for low energy use operation, with a significant portion of the original building materials remaining untouched. The space also features a number of repurposed materials including all interior doors and 80% of the total furniture. All new-build is overwhelmingly from natural materials, including white oak flooring from wood grown and milled in Allegheny National Forest and the exclusive use of non-VOC, water-based finishes throughout.
Please note that COVID-19 protocols will be in place at this event, including masks required indoors. Pre-registration is required, and registration will close on November 3.
Admission to this tour is $5 and food and drinks are free of charge for tour participants.
Our EP Committee looks forward to seeing you!
