Ever wondered what benefits a green wall adds to a building? Could electric or diesel vehicles support the rugged nature of the Grounds crew’s work? Green Seed Fund teams funded in 2013-14 will hold a poster session on June 2 to share the results of their research, which took a look at these questions and more.

Teams have been working for over a year, examining how users interact with the buildings they study and work in; taking a look at indoor environment quality at the HUB; rating the carbon footprint of UW Grounds utility vehicles; studying the Green Wall at Gould Hall; and developing a model for sustainability within the laboratories at the UW’s Department of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences.

The poster session will be held from 11 a.m. to noon on Tuesday, June 2, in Gerberding 142. See more about the 2013-14 teams here: http://green.uw.edu/gsf/2015-projects
