Endowment Webcast Examines Green Building Opportunities
The National Housing Endowment, in partnership with East Carolina University, will join with leading experts in the nation’s home building industry to present “Growing Green: A Sustainable Approach to Residential Construction.”
This year’s installment in the endowment and university’s “Building Communities Residential Construction Management Seminar Series,” the webcast will air on Feb. 3 at 2:00 p.m. EST and will also be available for viewing anytime after that date.
The webcast seminar series is designed to expose students to a full range of real-world opportunities and challenges in residential construction.
The webcast will feature Bill Killmer, NAHB’s group executive vice president of advocacy; and Mike Luzier, president of the NAHB Research Center. Mark Tipton, 1991 NAHB president, will moderate.
The program will look at the NAHB Green Building Program and how it is being implemented in the field today, including a discussion on how green building is promoting resource efficiency and practical green alternatives to traditional residential building technologies and techniques.
The series of webcast seminars is aimed at making students more aware of residential construction career opportunities and providing a forum for successful industry professionals to share their insights on home building.
This special event marks the third installment of the Building Communities series.
Students, faculty members and industry representatives from all over the country are encouraged to log in to view the webcast at www.rcmseries.ecu.edu. All of the webcasts in the series are available for viewing on this site.
