WASHINGTON - Home building professionals will be traveling to Albuquerque, N.M., for the National Green Building Conference, set for March 12-14, 2006. Sponsored by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), the conference will offer a look at new products and provide educational opportunities on green building.

Seminars at the conference include a detailed look at NAHB's Model Green Home Building Guidelines, "Green by Design," led by green building pioneer and architect Peter Pfeiffer, FAIA; a look at green residential remodeling; and "Taking Building Science from the Conference to the Construction Site," to help attendees more easily turn their learning into action for their businesses.

Attendees can also board a bus to tour an off-the-grid green straw bale and adobe home from designer and builder Ted Owens, co-founder of Syncronos Design Inc., a 17-year-old company focusing on energy-and-resource-efficient building design.

The conference will also present Vision House 06, a green building demonstration house that shows how sustainability can work with beautiful design and stay within budgetary constraints, says NAHB. The home is being built by Norm Schreifels of Sun Mountain Construction.

Winners of the 2005 Green Building Awards will also be honored, recognizing individuals, organizations, and companies that have made significant contributions to the principles of residential green building.
