The CSI Knoxville chapter would like to thank Amy Barnett-Mohr with Ambius and Eric Westerduin, CEO at Suite Plants for a great lunch and learn on Living Green Walls. Eric travelled from Charlotte, NC to present the concepts of green walls Return On Investment (ROI), Design, installation, planning & maintenance along with a demonstration of several actual living green wall products. The attendees were able to “kick the tires” on two examples of Living Green Walls. We had 10 attendees who enjoyed a large grilled chicken and spinach salad with the “largest blackberries in captivity” and large chocolate chip brownies for dessert. Thanks also to Jeremy Shipp at Johnson & Galyon and Will Dunklin who arranged the speakers along with Leslie Fawaz and Josh Shaffer who have coordinated with CSI to use the East Tennessee Community Design Center conference room for the technical presentations for the past several years.
A great time of networking and seeing old friends and meeting new friends!
The CSI Knoxville chapter would like to thank Yancey Quiett with Ben O’Neal Company who brought Vince Scriboni with Zurn Green Turtle from Florida to teach 12 attendees “everything they wanted to know” about grease interceptors. Vince described the grease interceptors as large tanks which are required by the local utility company at restaurants and other food service facilities to separate Fats, Oil, and Grease (FOG) from the sanitary sewer stream to prevent Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSO) due to grease clogged pipes. The attendees were a good cross section of the construction community with one building owner, one interior designer, several architects, two general contractors, and one plumber. Thanks also to Jeremy Shipp at Johnson & Galyon who has arranged the lunch and learn speakers along with Wayne Blasius, Leslie Fawaz and Josh Schaffer who have allowed CSI to use the East Tennessee Community Design Center conference room for the informative presentations for the past several years.
