Chuck Lohre

Organization: Green Cincinnati


In 2007 we started to promote LEED by holding afternoon
seminars as forums for prominent LEED pioneers to address the
community of architects, engineers, contractors and the public. From
there we started to volunteer with the Cincinnati Regional Chapter of
the U.S. Green Building Council and helped develop their web site and
trade show exhibit materials. Promotion doesn’t come without
education and we registered our offices as a LEED CI project as well
as Chuck Lohre passing the LEED AP exam. After developing educational
materials for the Fernald Preserve Visitors Center we created classes
to help individuals pass the LEED AP exam with one-on-one mentoring
and tutoring. With the push to achieve LEED AP status by June 30,
2009, several classes were held. A unique aspect of the classes were
actual tours of many regional LEED projects. In May 2011 we achieved
LEED Platinum.
