Green Building for Commercial Structures

I attended a forum on green building for commercial and civic buildings today, organized by Sustainable Novato. The forum included an impressive panel of participants, including Geof Syphers of Sonoma Mountain Village(at right), a completely sustainable redevelopment project in Rohnert Park (Sonoma County, CA) and Mark Palmer, the Green Building Coordinator for the city of San Francisco.Sonoma Mountain Village is an incredible $1 billion, 200-acre mixed-use community. They are planning on utilizing green building practices to “reduce the ecological footprint of the entire 1900-home community down to a truly sustainable” level. It is the first One Planet Community – a completely sustainably built community – being constructed in North America, and only the fourth in the world. They’re even using all of the resources found at the former computer factory site by tearing up old roads and recycling all the old roads to build new roads.

We also heard a presentation on the new California Academy of Sciences Building currently being built in Golden Gate Park, which will include a 3.5-acre grass roof surrounded by solar panels. For pictures, click here

  2. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
