Just a few weeks away from commencement, the 13th annual Greenbuild Conference, held this year in New Orleans Oct.22-24, gathers the best of the best in the building industry in the spirit of collaboration and working toward a brighter future – and we’re going to be there!

Our US Builders Review team will be on the expo floor (Oct. 22-23) connecting you with our 2014 Editor’s Choice winners, which represent the most innovative businesses and the brightest of thousands of industry leaders, experts and professionals dedicated to sustainable building in their everyday work.

Connecting Green Building Leaders

Greenbuild features three days of inspiring speakers, valuable networking opportunities, industry showcases, LEED workshops and tours of the host city’s best sustainable structures. The three-daylong event hosts educational sessions, eligible for continuing education professional credits through the Greenbuild education program. Professionals can attend LEED works shops and earn up to seven hours of continuing education credit for Green Associate and LEEP AP certification.

The convention also connects industry professionals with more than 750 suppliers and top manufacturers of the latest green building equipment, products, services and technology available in today’s market.

What’s new this year?

This year, Greenbuild’s focus is on reducing environmental impact through six objectives:

  1. Moving toward a zero waste event
  2. Increasing stakeholder education and engagement
  3. Improving sustainable sourcing
  4. Improving performance tracking
  5. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions
  6. Positively impacting communities

Greenbuild will feature an annual film festival including documentaries and informational videos as well as a leadership awards luncheon, recognizing outstanding individuals and organizations committed to advancing green building design, construction and operations. The USGBC Talent Force Exchange also continues with the belief that any job in any field can be a green job. Greenbuild 2014 also hosts the annual Women in Green Power Breakfast, a salute to women in the industry who have emerged as great sustainability leaders shaping a green economy.

The process was simple: we were provided questions that the writers wanted to discuss, we were interviewed, and then we got to see a few drafts before the final version went to print. Given the quality of this publication, on behalf of Giroux, I can assure everyone that all of my partners would be happy to participate in similar articles in the future.

Jennifer Wilhelmsen – Director of Human Resources, EJH Construction Inc.
I was contacted as a nominee for the Greenbuild Editor’s Choice 2016 recognition and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Working with US Builders Review has been a blessing for my company. Erica Berry took an awesome interview in the initial call as she gathered data for the article. She was concerned about how we became us, and she made me feel important by listening and taking notes. Then there is Ian Nichols who made me feel so comfortable in sharing my story, and Molly Shaw who interviewed me as well, as she was getting ready to create an awesome article about my company -- and I must say she nailed it on the first run! What a pleasure it has been to work with everyone. This feature on Container Homes USA will help me push the company into the forefront at the Greenbuild Expo 2016.
— Derrick C. W. Childs, Director Construction & Design, Container Homes USA
The team at US Builders Review is professional and did a great job with your published article. They asked for and listened to my feedback and responded quickly to any requests I made.

My experience with US Builders Review was positive from start to finish. The staff conducted each interaction with the utmost professionalism, whether over the phone or by email. Beginning with the initial telephone interview US Builders Review carefully gathered information to form a draft document then incorporated my minimal edits required to achieve factual accuracy in the finished article. US Builders Review is a pleasure to work with.
