It's Hard Work:Responsible and Sustainable Lives Pt. 1 of 2
Dennis Wilde is a Principal at Gerding Edlen Development. He is a nationally respected green building expert and helped create the Sustainable Solutions division of GEDI. Mr. Wilde has more than 20 years of experience in urban planning and design, and has been active in construction and real estate development since 1980. Mr. Wilde, who joined GEDI in 1997, is responsible for feasibility studies, management of the pre-construction and construction process, tenant improvement  coordination and overall project management.
In this interview, he talks about how The Natural Step helped him in his path to sustainability and how now we are realizing the importance of new buildings, but we need to focus on the existing infrastructure and realize the behavior of the people who live in the buildings must change.
Gerding Edlen has embarked on more LEED projects than any other development company in North America, and in 2008 adopted net zero energy, carbon and waste as its goal for future projects.
