Beaverton, OR, United States, 2006/06/12 - Why Green Building makes financial sense? Pacific Security Capital Managing Director, Theddi Wright Chappell, makes a keynote address at the Land Development Breakthroughs Conference on "How Sustainable Developments Make Greater Financial Sense".
Pacific Security Capital, a vertically integrated real estate services firm, today announced that Theddi Wright Chappell, Managing Director of its Commercial Real Estate Advisory Services business unit, will be a keynote speaker at the upcoming Land Development Breakthroughs Conference in Chicago, July 10 – 12, 2006.
Chappell, who is a LEED certified professional and has years of experience in the sustainable real estate development industry, will deliver a keynote presentation on "How Sustainable Developments Make Greater Financial Sense."
"Many people are skeptical about investing in green buildings," said Theddi Wright Chappell, "it is easy to be deterred by upfront costs without considering the great return on investment down the road."
Sustainable developments should be viewed as attractive investment opportunities because of their minimal upkeep and long term cost savings due to:
• Water Conservation
• Decreased utility bills
• Better air quality
• Energy efficiency
• Reduced maintenance costs
• Extended property lifecycle
Pacific Security Capital recently joined forces with sustainable development industry expert, Scott Muldavin, to form the Green Building Finance Consortium, which pools together some of the greatest minds in the real estate finance industry. The goal of this consortium is to create evaluation tools and best practices necessary for the investment community to really measure the financial value of sustainable development.
"The real estate industry is taking more and more notice when it comes to sustainable development," said Theddi Wright Chappell, "but investors are naturally looking for a way to prove that there is real value in their investment."
Join Theddi Wright Chappell in Chicago for a discussion on the value of building green.
