Annual “Green Day” Retreat

Each year OPN hosts a one-day sustainability workshop to realign us with our core sustainability goals. On June 18, both offices converged at Grinnell College for our annual Green Day symposium. This year we heard from guest speakers Nico Kienzl, the Director of Atelier Ten’s New York office (shown below at left) and George Bandy Jr, Vice President of Interface. The afternoon consisted of group and panel discussions on various sustainability topics. The day provided an opportunity for OPN to discuss and renew our commitment to sustainable practices across all disciplines

“What an inspiring and thoughtful day filled with new opportunities and challenges to move OPN into the future!” – Katie Harms, AIA, LEED AP

“With such inspired and knowledgeable speakers leading us thru a day of reflection and visioning, I am sure the passion and insight evoked at the GreenDay Retreat will raise the quality of the sustainable practice in the office.” – Joe Tursi, AIA
