Green Homebuilder's Day Premieres at Greenbuild
The 2008 Greenbuild International Conference & Expo featured the first-ever Green Homebuilder’s Day. The residentially focused program was held Nov. 20 and included a panel session moderated by Kevin O’Connor, host of the PBS program This Old House. The panel addressed the changing housing market and discussed what will need to change over the next 50 years to ensure homes are sustainable and healthy for those who live in them. Green Homebuilder’s Day also featured an educational session track.
Green Homebuilder’s Day capped off with a closing reception, at which seven projects and builders received awards. Also, attendees had the opportunity to meet with a LEED for Homes Provider from their area.
