Greenbuild 2007!

Greenbuild 2007!

This week 20,000 green building professionals are descending on Chicago for the U.S. Green Building Council’s annual Greenbuild conference. The show is at the new McCormick Place West building, which is expected to earn a LEED® certification. We won’t focus on detailed conference coverage – Inhabitat has proved a good resource for this in the past – but here’s a shout-out to all our out-of-town readers dropping in this week.

The mayor kicked off conference events Saturday with a ribbon-cutting for the new Green Building Resource Center at the Chicago Center for Green Technology. This is the legacy project for Greenbuild and is beautiful and dramatic expansion of the space formerly housed in a hallway (literally) at Green Tech. We’ll provide a detailed review in the next few weeks, but for now, get out there and check out the space!
