The Rise of Public Health in Sustainability

February 2, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

If 2020 taught us anything, it’s the importance of creating healthier buildings. This need goes beyond adding sanitizing stations and more space to social distance and touches on every aspect of the way we design, build, and operate. Join Kathleen Hetrick, Senior Sustainability Engineer at Buro Happold for a deeper dig into the rise of public health in the built environment and why it must be considered when building resilient sustainable buildings.

Kathleen Hetrick is a senior engineer at Buro Happold and a WELL AP and LEED AP BD+C accredited professional. As part of the Buro Happold Los Angeles Sustainability team, Kathleen combines her passion for regenerative design with a technical background in Architectural Engineering. She leads the sustainable design process on a wide range of cutting-edge buildings including LEED Platinum, Zero Carbon and Living Building Challenge projects, historical adaptive reuse, LEED Neighbourhood Developments, and university sustainability plans. She is currently leading the Living Building Challenge process for the Santa Monica City Hall East, which aims to create a new precedent for Net Zero Energy and Water buildings in Southern California. She also co-facilitates Buro Happold’s Diversity and Inclusion Forum, spearheading the outreach initiatives to encourage local K-12 students to pursue sustainability-focused careers in STEM.
