Green Building Moving Into the Mainstream at Austin Conference
Mainstream and specialty builders can learn more about resource-efficient, environmentally sensitive and cost-effective “green” building at the 2004 National Green Building Conference in Austin, TX, on March 14-16.
The NAHB conference is being held in the heart of the city that gave birth to the green building movement, and some 500 attendees are expected to be on hand to exchange green building ideas, see the latest in green building products and technologies from 67 exhibitors and participate in educational sessions on green mortgages, green land development, water conservation, trends in green building design and more.
Tours will be available on the first day of the conference, including visits to award-winning infill subdivisions, Austin’s first SMART housing development and:
