Rendering of West 2nd St districtNCET Tech Wednesday logo

We get stupid excited about every single event sponsored by NCET (including The Introvert Revolution presented by our very own introvert Mikalee Byerman), but we’re particularly pumped up about next week’s Tech Wednesday. Join us when the Don J Clark Group talks about northern Nevada’s most innovative development project — the West 2nd District — and the technology that’s behind it. Since we’ve been working with the talented folks at DJC for the past few months, we’ve already learned a lot about their plans. Now it’s time to share the excitement! (And the deets).

 

You may have heard that this project is going to transform downtown Reno, or at least the 17 acres to the west of it, but did you know about the high-tech features of this urban reboot?

 

Here are just a few of the topics that will be discussed during the mixer:

  • One-gigabyte internet, television and phone service for every residence, business and common area in the District
  • Systems for intelligent building automation and reduction of energy consumption
  • Safety and security technology
  • Earthquake readiness
  • Sustainability
  • Organic water reclamation system

 

There will also be a walking tour of the West 2nd District before the presentation (limited to the first 25 people who arrive and sign up) so you can see how it looks now, followed by a 3D virtual reality video to show you how it’s going to look when done.

 

If that’s not enough to get you clicking and registering, we’ll let you and your taste buds in on a little secret — Brooke Lampert of Divine Plate will be catering this shindig. If you’ve attended any of our Divine events in the past you probably just drooled a little. It’s OK, we’ll have napkins.

 

Learn more about the West 2nd District during NCET’s Tech Wednesday event from 5:30-7:30 pm on Wednesday, October 11. More information and registration is at www.NCETwed.org.
