Top 5 reasons to attend GreenBuild 2013


That’s right, it’s officially time for GreenBuild! Need a little convincing of how great the conference is? We've rounded up 5 reasons not to miss this event. 
FIVE: All of your (environmentally friendly) friends will be there. 
 
November 20-22 will find Philadelphia, PA teeming with passionate people concerned with the future of sustainable building. As one of our favorite events of the year,  it's a chance to gather like-minded designers, builders, suppliers and other eco enthusiasts. The largest conference of its kind, GreenBuild aims to act as a catalyst for sustainable innovation with industry showcases, networking events and educational speakers.  

 
FOUR: The opportunity to attend the interactive session led by Anne Nicklin, Elise Zelechowski, Michael Ross and David Walsh.

The title of the program is "The Reincarnation of Building Materials" and the discussion will center on providing opportunities to reuse materials in creative and conscientious new ways. If you're at GreenBuild, do yourself a favor catch this session on November 21st at 3:30 in room 122, 100 level. You won't be disappointed.

And if you have a quick 60 seconds to spare, let BMRA know what will be on your mind at GreenBuild.  

THREE: See how natural disasters have created a unique opportunity for building material reuse.


Our own Nathan Benjamin, along with Jeremy Knoll of BNIM and Ryan Evans of Henderson Engineers will lead a panel centered on the importance of rescuing, salvaging and repurposing materials in the face of natural disaster. You'll be amazed by the stories of triumph over tragedy and the innovative ways people have found to sustainably rebuild after the storm. Come check it out on November 21st at 8 a.m. in room 118A, 100 level.
