Last week, the USGBC held its annual Greenbuild convention and conference at Chicago’s McCormick Place convention center. Colin Powell delivered the key-note address and attendance was estimated at 25,000 people.
Elemental building was part of a sold-out tour featuring urban residential projects and included attendees from Canada, Israel, Singapore, Brazil, the Hague as well as cities across the US. The tour was so popular a second tour was added to accommodate members of the Chinese Consulate and the Chinese USGBC.
In classic realty show fashion- the 50 person tour bus pulled up front as the general contractor was loading up the last of the left over materials on a truck out the back, and the cleaning crew was putting last-minute touches on the basement.
