Be Briefed on Industry Insights from Greenbuild Conference 2019 at Green Built Alliance Workshop

1 to 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 12

Lenoir-Rhyne, 36 Montford, Room 314, Asheville

The 2019 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo in Atlanta was an exciting place to be. To bring some of the inspiration back to our home community, Sam Ruark-Eastes, executive director of Green Built Alliance, and Daniel de Wit, designer from EnnisArt, are offering a workshop to share their insights from attending this large international conference.

Daniel will discuss the interesting and innovative products that were on the expo floor, along with debriefs from some of the sessions. Sam will discuss the focus on embodied carbon, equity, biophillia and net-zero energy that he learned about at the event.
