Spec It Green: The Contractor's Advantage
Thursday, Sep 6, 2007
Third in the series, this seminar will cover the benefits and challenges of sourcing and installing reused, recycled and sustainably-harvested materials. Selection of the right building materials can be crucial to a project seeking LEED designation. These environmentally preferable materials can contribute to both greater energy efficiency and indoor air quality within the building envelope, as well as a more sustainable environment.
This seminar will highlight locally manufactured products including green signage, window treatments, countertops, and other energy efficient materials, and will include a panel discussion with green building industry professionals.
