Collaboration for Sustainability Solutions in Balboa Park SDGBC is part of a multi-organizational effort with The City of San Diego, Balboa Park Cultural Partnership, and San Diego Gas & Electric to provide education and outreach on green buildings and operations in Balboa Park. SDGBC has supported this work by bringing the Green Assistance Program (GAP) to Balboa Park. GAP aids local non-profits that desire to green their buildings and operations by rallying a team of volunteers to prepare a LEED for Existing Building feasibility assessment for a non-profit building. This program also provides SDGBC members with valuable LEED project experience and the opportunity to learn from and network with other green building professionals, strengthening and expanding the local green building community. “We are excited to be a partner in this effort of greening the operations of the institutions in Balboa Park. Every dollar saved in these buildings means another dollar to support the cultural programs that are so important to our community.�

The partnership between Balfour Beatty Construction and the San Diego Green Building Council, working together on Green Apple Day of Service at Oceanside High School, has been a win-winwin for all of us. The opportunity to work together and obtain our mutual goals of building better environments, eliminating waste, and being advocates for our clients is a great accomplishment. The event also provided the opportunity to educate the entire school community, and our volunteers, about the benefits of Green Building. Reaction from the District, students, and staff at Oceanside High School was overwhelmingly positive. They are extremely appreciative of the amount of time and hard work we all put in to enhance their school and neighborhood. We look forward to future partnerships with the San Diego Green Building Council and being a Relentless Ally for each and every dream we are
