Sustainable Buildings Industry Council Symposium
Fostering Innovation to go Beyond GreenTM

SBIC Symposium

Within the building industry, the concept of sustainability often leads to optimization of "green” attributes. However, to meet owner and occupant demands for buildings that meet their social, economic and environmental requirements, the industry must look Beyond Green™. With the theme Fostering Innovation to go Beyond Green™, the Sustainable Buildings Industry Council (SBIC) Symposium will specifically address this important issue.

When you attend the SBIC Symposium, you'll explore what social, economic and environmental sustainability means to various segments of the building industry and how an effective, holistic approach can move the industry Beyond Green™.

Plus, you'll have the opportunity to learn about real-world examples of sustainability directly from the winners of the 2012 Beyond Green™ High-Performance Building Awards.

The unique Beyond Green™ Awards program highlights those initiatives that shape, inform and catalyze the high-performance building market, while providing real-world examples of high-performance design and construction processes. The Beyond Green™ Awards recognize buildings, initiatives and products that best exemplify the eight design objectives of a high-performance building: sustainability, accessibility, aesthetics, cost-effectiveness, functionality, productivity, historical sensitivity, and safety and security. Categories include: Category A: High-Performance Buildings; Category B: High-Performance Initiatives; and Category C: High-Performance Products.

At the Symposium, the 2012 Beyond Green™ High-Performance Building Awards recipients will present their project case studies. This in-depth presentation and poster session will give winners an opportunity to share their experiences directly with leaders in the building community, highlighting the challenges and opportunities they faced while delivering high-performance buildings.

Following the Symposium, the winners of the 2012 Beyond Green™ High-Performance Building Awards will receive their prizes during a special Beyond Green™ Awards Luncheon sponsored by the Modular Building Institute.
