Building Sustainability: A Green Homes and Renovations Conference, is a two-day program of live and web-based presentations, panel discussions and workshops in Kimberley on Friday and Saturday, January 29 and 30, 2010.
Building Sustainability will offer a range of courses and workshops, covering everything from materials and design to green building rating systems and sustainable energy systems, and will feature an exciting roster of speakers with varied expertise in green building.
The goal of Building Sustainability is to build capacity in our community in green building by strengthening the knowledge base of those who are working in green building, introducing those who are not familiar with green building to the field, and building links between local tradespeople, designers, builders, suppliers, city officials and related businesses, as well as to educate the general public about the opportunities to be found in green building for providing healthy, energy efficient, comfortable and beautiful homes, whether they be new or renovations.
