ETN-USGBC hosted our first-ever DesignSlam Knoxville competition last night at The Standard. There were design teams, beverages, food, and people. So many people!
ZeroLandfill East Tennessee, an upcycling program, will be collecting expired samples from local architects & designers September 16-18, 2014, for redistribution to lower the amount of waste delivered to landfills.
What is DesignSlam Knoxville? ETN-USGBC’s DesignSlam Knoxville competition is opening the doors of the meeting room to the public, allowing you to see how teams pool their knowledge to design solutions to a local issue.
ETN-USGBC and The Technical Society of Knoxville have banded together with Wampler’s Farm Sausage to arrange a tour of the farm’s proton power installation on September 15 at 2PM. The tour will explore Wampler’s use of proton power (using biomass to make hydrogen, which can then be converted to energy), and allow attendees to see the farm’s installation firsthand, along with their large solar PV installation. The tour is free for all members of both TSK and ETN-USGBC.
ZeroLandfill East Tennessee is looking for volunteers to join them during the week of September 16-20 to help with several different projects. Click here to view the projects and sign up.
We’ve got an eventful fall ahead for ETN-USGBC members, so we want to give everyone plenty of advance notice on our upcoming activities. Be sure to add the following to your calendar, and to check back here for more specific details closer to the individual dates.

Got plans after work? If not, come to the open house of a home, once slated for demolition, that has not only been restored, thanks to a loan from the City of Knoxville’s Blighted Property Redevelopment Program, but is also on track to achieve both LEED Silver and EnergyStar certification.
The current owners/developers of the project are Mountain View Restorations, LLC, a partnership of neighbors who purchased the blighted and abandoned property from the City of Knoxville in order to restore the house and turn it into a neighborhood asset.
Join your fellow ETN-USGBC members at the Climate Knoxville Action for Effective Climate Policies event on July 12 from 5-8PM at Market Square in downtown Knoxville to raise awareness of and to promote action on climate change.
