Bob Berkebile: WHAT’S NEXT for Green Building?

Click Here to View a List of Program Attendees

In partnership with American Institute of Architects-St. Louis


As an architect for 45 years, Bob Berkebile, FAIA, is recognized repeatedly for outstanding sustainable design. He continues to blaze “step-lightly” trails in energy-conservation green building and regenerative design and construction. Berkebile describes the next stage of green building design and construction as “regenerative” where buildings give back. Regenerative buildings produce more energy and water than they use and manage all waste on site.

Join us on October 18 to listen to Berkebile share his views on what’s next for green building and the LEED Green Building Rating System, as well as what tools and resources are most beneficial when pursuing regenerative design and construction. Living Buildings, One Planet Community, and REGEN, USGBC’s tool to move beyond LEED Platinum, will be discussed.

Ten years ago, Berkebile was the keynoter at USGBC-Missouri Gateway’s first meeting. Bringing Berkebile back to help celebrate our 10-Year Anniversary, we look forward to what’s next for green building and the organization.


  • Identify primary economic, social and environmental forces driving public and private decisions about the built environment.
  • Discover how to select the most advantageous building and development types and locations for sustainable development.
  • Discuss green building tools and resources  such as the Living Building Challenge and REGEN, USGBC’s tool to move beyond LEED Platinum.
  • Examine what adjustments in communication and implementation strategies for design, development and construction teams that will improve desired sustainability outcomes.
