"The U.S. Green Building Council is a unique forum for helping project managers and facilities operators achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)," said Dick Hynes, director of consultant services at Hobart. "Greenbuild is a rare opportunity for Hobart to learn about the issues affecting their efforts and to share some of the latest technology that advances cost-efficiency and environmental sustainability in buildings that include foodservice."
The company recently participated in the fifth Greenbuild Expo in Denver, the council's annual conference, at which Hobart demonstrated how engineering for efficiency can contribute to cost savings and environmentally sustainable foodservice operations. Architects, engineers and foodservice managers working in K-12 and higher education learned how reducing water and energy use and waste generation can support a greener kitchen while substantially reducing long-term operating and cost-of-ownership expenses.
