Fall 2017 Green Building Walking Tour

Meet at 1700 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103
Thu, 10/12/2017 - 2:45pm - 5:00pm

We are excited to announce our Green Building Walking Tour, featuring a completed project and one under construction. The tour will start at 2:45 pm in front of WRT, 1700 Market Street, and end at WRT for our Fall Happy Hour.   

The W Hotel is under construction and requires PPE. Attendees will need closed toe shoes, a hard hat, vest, and eye protection. Please bring your own if you have them; limited supplies are available. If you need PPE, email Leah Wirgau at lwirgau@dvgbc.org so we can ensure enough supplies for everyone. Attendees without proper PPE will not be allowed on the tour. 

A special thanks to our emerging professionals, Maegan Sweeney, The Sheward Partnership, and Dixi Wang, WRT, for coordinating this tour. 

Space is limited! 

If you are planning to join us for our Fall Happy Hour, separate registration is required.
