Greenbuild 2014: Where Green Building Leaders Meet

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.

Testimonials

We are excited to be featured as a case study in US Builders Review and look forward to sharing our company’s story with a national audience.
— Ryan Sanzari, Director of Operations, Alfred Sanzari Enterprises
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.
— Barbara Kotsos, Director of Marketing & PR, Giroux Glass
What a great team US Builders has put in place! Having worked with Victor Martins a few years back, I was pleasantly surprised that he remembered our experience and contacted us again about an updated article. Not only did Victor brainstorm with me about content that would resonate with readers, but he assigned an excellent writer, Molly Shaw, to our account. Her interview with my client, Bardi Heating Cooling & Plumbing, was professional and succinct; as was her writing style. We had very few edits and were pleased not only with the article, but how well it was enhanced by color photos. Much appreciated!
— Karen Bird, Owner of Strategic Marketing Services, Bardi Heating Cooling & Plumbing
The final product was an exceptionally well written and thorough story integrated with many of our project photos. It is a great endorsement of our company and our work that we are promoting on our website and through social media. We were impressed with the quality of the editorial and the professional follow-through.
— Susan Howell, Marketing Director for Howell Custom Building Group
It was an absolute pleasure to work with the writers and editorial team at TrueLine Publishing for our recent article in US Builders Review. From the start of the project, it was apparent that everyone involved was very concerned with accuracy and getting the facts right. They were also very conscientious about soliciting our feedback and ensuring that we were happy with the content and with the manner in which Giroux Glass was described in the finalized piece.

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.
