    The "New Normal"​ for Health in Real Estate

    In this episode of 3P Theory we explore how people can effectively transition back into the workplace as the COVID-19 crisis hopefully begins to die down over the following months. Also discussed is how building owners and managers, tenants, and other occupants can come together to find solutions to make the workplace “safe” again in the new normal.

    Making Sense of Water with Water First™ Engineering (Part II)

    Making Sense of Water with Water First™ Engineering (Part II)

    On average, 50-60% of municipal water is being used for landscape irrigation purposes, and it is observed that is a staggering trend of overwatering in Texas alone. Due to this, governments will predictably increase prices on this vital resource. In order to effectively promote water conservation, it is important to use the vernacular of project developers and owners: Simply, illustrate how reducing usage increases the property value.

    Matt Hall with Hines, Inc. shares his experience with water management and building value through water resources. With consistent innovation, engineering and design Hines continues to stay on the front-line of water conservation approaches, technology, and implementation to save our clients money, water, and time.

    You Are What You Breathe: Improved Indoor Air Quality

    You Are What You Breathe: Improved Indoor Air Quality

    The US Environmental Protection Agency named indoor air quality as one of the top 5 health threats in the U.S. That’s because we are spending 90% of our time indoors. Are you aware of the benefits of bipolar ionization technology? Bipolar ionization is essential in our lives since it focuses on purifying the air as opposed to the filtration offered by other technologies. The benefits that come with ionization commercial buildings and homes cannot be overlooked.

    In this episode Carlos Gendron with AtmosAir™ discusses discusses a topic that everyone is talking about right now amidst the coronavirus outbreak. Indoor air quality is now more important than ever.

    The Value of Building Commissioning

    The Value of Building Commissioning

    Commissioning ensures that each step of the design process is documented for the protection of the contractor, designers and owners in order to deliver a project that works from the beginning and can be operated by the building’s facilities staff. Obviously, commissioning is no small task and can have wide ranging effects on a project, so are you putting enough thought into selecting your Commissioning Agent/Team?

    In this episode, we chat with Michael Flemming with Interface Engineering. He has vast experience and background in conducting commissioning and energy auditing. He helps clients to enhance their energy saving while creating a hospitable interior environment.

    Leveraging Solar Co-ops for Community Solar

    Leveraging Solar Co-ops for Community Solar

    Solar co-ops organize 50 to 100 neighbors in a group to go solar together. People love the community approach. Qualified experts support you through each stage of the solar process and members leverage bulk-purchasing power to get discounted pricing and a quality installation, while still signing individual contracts that ensure the right system for their home. Sounds like a win-win? That's because it is.

    In this episode Hanna Mitchell, Texas Program Director for the nonprofit Solar United Neighbors, discusses how homeowners can investment to build the value of their home with clean energy.

Informative, current, and interesting

I really enjoy the technical and informative aspect. Great for novices and experts. It does well in staying current with codes and technologies. Also, it keeps your attention throughout.

A must listen for practical tips on sustainable design in the built environment

As someone who’s interested in architecture and the built environment, I was aware of the movement towards sustainable design and practices. While I knew of the environmental benefits of such a paradigm shift, I was not aware of the concrete economic and health benefits such a shift would generate too.

This podcast offers clear examples and explanations of technology today that has the potential to transform the way we approach the design of the built environment. It also offers tangible implications that might be generated from their use too, many of which I found particularly striking. The episode on indoor air quality took me from ignorance to an advocate for bi-polar ionization air purification systems.

I would definitely recommend this podcast to peers that have a stake in the design, operation, and use of buildings and cities, which is basically everyone!

Incredible ACE related podcast

An amazing podcast about what it means to build and design towards a “greener” world. Mike asks great questions that elicit real nuggets from his guests. Mike also chooses guests that amount to a wide range of perspectives in Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (ACE) -- insights from how to run and operate a small business in the ACE space to the latest trends in energy consumption modeling.

Would absolutely recommend this podcast to anyone in the ACE industry, particularly if you’re in texas!!
