Residential Summit
Thursday, October 6

The fourth annual Greenbuild Residential Summit on Thursday Oct. 6 is a unique event that will feature a variety of education sessions and networking events for leaders in the residential green building industry to gather to discuss new opportunities and innovative strategies in the residential marketplace.

This year's Residential Summit General Session will feature Frans Johansson, entrepreneurial thought-leader and author of The Medici Effect. The book is a fascinating journey to the Intersection: the place where ideas from different fields and cultures collide, exploding into extraordinary new innovations. Johansson shows that interdisciplinary approaches and diverse project teams can change the world.

With fifteen educational sessions throughout the day covering topics from plumbing layouts to LEED Platinum multifamily communities for less than $110 per sq ft, there is something for every residential professional.
