The Houston Chapter of AIA's Committee on the Environment (COTE) third green building symposium and expo will take place April 3-6, 2008 at Reliant Park, Houston, Texas.
This year, GCG 2008 will focus on both professionals and the public: Four educational tracks offering various skill levels for the
design and construction professional will be offered at the two-day seminar, while we will all be encouraged to become familiar with the
latest in certified green building products and innovations at the Consumer Expo, new to GCG this year.
The theme of the 2008 conference is Innovations in Building for Hot and Humid Climates. The conference's specific focus is green or sustainable building along the Gulf Coast Region, but the content includes broader issues such as sustainable land use and global warming.
Educational tracks will be: Meeting the Carbon Neutral Challenge; Ecological Design; Sustainable Land Use & Development; and Innovations in Sustainable Design.
