Mehmet thinks that green building is not an option but a must, and believes that the USGBC has proven to be the strongest advocate and richest resource to the sustainable built environment goals of many. Mehmet lives and works in San Antonio; he would like to help build a better San Antonio for the local community. He is a licensed engineer with 10+ years of industry experience. Mehmet is a project manager, involved in a wide variety of design and construction projects. He has an academic background in sustainability rating systems. Mehmet can bring the Chapter Board the needed connection to the community of designers and builders in San Antonio, and provide a great mix of the perspectives of the industry and the academia. He hopes to learn from other chapter members as we work towards a common good. Mehmet believes there is much to be done within the spectrum of sustainable development, in South Texas as well as the rest of the nation, and there is no better place to begin than at USGBC.
