“We’ve learned that programming and hosting the Green Week educational events is an ideal way to engage our staff, clients and peers on what’s new and relevant in sustainable and high performance architecture,” said Kathy McMahon, Associate Principal at CBT. Our staff love the fact that so much information is available to them in-house over the course of the week.”
