Resilience is the ability to bounce back following a disturbance or interruption. Alex Wilson, President of the Resilient Design Institute, will present "Resilient Design as a Driver of Sustainability."
The Northwest EcoBuilding Guild and Built Green will host the 3rd annual Northwest Green Home Tour on April 27, from 11 am-5 pm.
The 2013 Green Home Tour features a self-guided excursion to view 25+ local, healthy, and green new homes, remodels, and energy retrofits in the Seattle area, on Bainbridge Island, and on the Eastside.
Discover green building strategies that work from projects in your own neighborhoods from backyard cottages and remodels to new spec and custom homes, something for everyone - healthy homes, water conservation, deconstruction, energy retrofits, solar and more.
Meet three operations experts who will share ways they have used sustainability to identify and implement operational improvements that have achieved near-term return on investment for their businesses.
