About the Green Building Resource Center

Our Mission

"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."

Our Initiatives

Visitors can peruse the showroom, touch and feel samples, and learn about green building options in a relaxed setting. Browse on your own, use an interactive workstation, or ask questions of the Green Building Resource Center staff.

We also offer complimentary interim plan review services by appointment to suggest strategies for conserving energy and water, saving money, and creating a healthier building environment.

The GBRC sponsors educational programs at the Houston Permitting Center and in the community. See our Events page to learn more.

Our Showroom

The display showroom located in the GBRC carries a wide range of eco-friendly products and methods that educate the public on how to incorporate sustainable design components in residential and commercial settings. The showroom is broken into four sections: building components, water conservation, site, and energy efficiency. Learn about new, innovative ways to save energy costs in your home or business by browsing through our display presentation boards and models. Resource guides are conveniently located throughout showroom to provide additional information.
