Local Green Building Tours Educate Public in Connecticut.
The United States Green Building Council is a National and Global group with local chapter to help educate the public, real estate agents, builders, architects, homeowners and more. One way is through tours of existing ‘green’ buildings where one can actually touch, see, experience the space as well as to see the actual numbers in costs & savings. Green building is not just about less maintenance, saving energy and resources but also about a healthier and more comfortable lifestyle at home and in the workplace.
The Connecticut chapter, CTGBC, of the U.S. Green Building Council and has organized two tours to learn more about sustainable residential buildings in March 2012:
1. A single family LEED home under construction. The tour is with the owner and builder in Greenwich, Connecticut that is midway in the construction process.
