CHICAGO - The U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC’s) annual Greenbuild conference and exhibition, which will be held at the McCormick Place West in Chicago Nov. 7-9, is offering education sessions covering the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system, green building technology, and all of the new happenings surrounding the green building industry.

Greenbuild 2007 is considered one of the world’s largest conference and exhibit halls dedicated to green building. Attendees can expect to learn about the rapidly growing green building industry, including the LEED green building rating system, which was developed by the USGBC.

The conference is designed to bring both the commercial and the residential sectors together. The conference is for HVACR contractors, architects, homebuilders, real estate professionals, code officials, educators, financial service providers, government agencies, green power providers, interior designers, schools, universities, students, and urban planners. Greenbuild is expected to host 18,000 key players in the green building industry.

This year’s conference is scheduled to explore “Accelerating Green Communities” through a variety of educational sessions, full- and half-day LEED workshops, speakers, special events, and tours.

Some of the planned workshops include “LEED for General Contractors/Construction Managers” and “Energy Modeling for LEED for New Construction Projects.” Planned educational sessions/topics include “Learning from Our Buildings: A New Protocol for Performance Evaluation of Occupied Buildings”, “LEED for Schools: Findings on the Health and Environmental Benefits”, “ASHRAE’s Advanced Energy Design Guides and LEED Indoor Air Quality: Answers to Many Questions”, and “LEED Building Performance Metrics Performance: Energy, Environment, and Occupants”.

The exhibit hall is expected to be the largest in Greenbuild history, and will feature more than 850 exhibit booths showcasing the latest products, technologies, and services.
