JRGBC honors green building on Nov. 10 at Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen

The James River Green Building Council (JRGBC) will hold its seventh annual Green Building Leadership Awards and Exhibition on Thursday, Nov. 10 from 2:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at The Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen, 2880 Mountain Rd. The keynote speaker will be George Bandy, vice president for sustainability, strategy and diversity at InterfaceFLOR.

Every fall, the JRGBC honors organizations and their leaders for outstanding contributions to green building in Virginia, as well as recognizing outstanding green building projects in the central Virginia region. One award in four categories – nonprofit organizations, private sector businesses, government and individual – is presented to those who well-represent the Chapter’s mission to inspire and promote the transformation to a sustainable built environment. Nominees must demonstrate strong and outstanding leadership and action in the cause of green building as a vital part of the local, regional or state community. Awards for projects will be given in the categories of new construction, adaptive re-use/renovation, residential and an overall Juror’s Favorite.

In conjunction with the awards event, the JRGBC will host a large number of displays to showcase products, services and companies that participate in green building. Tickets are $50 and are open to the public. To register, call Megan Miller at 440-0599 or email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
