About the Center
"To enable the public to experience and learn more about healthy and energy, water, and material conserving design and construction; also known as Green Building."
The public can have their plan reviewed for opportunities to add green strategies to save energy and water, and make their building healthier by our Program Director.
Customers can peruse the shelves and displays, touch and feel samples, and learn about green building options in a relaxed setting. They can then browse on their own, use an interactive workstation, or ask questions of the Green Building Resource Center Staff.
