GreenNC 2009 Tradeshow Recap - What a turnout!

GreenNC Trade Show 2009If the turnout at GreenNC 2009 is any indication, green building has reached a new level of sophistication and collaboration in NC.   I applaud the collaboration between the three NC chapters of the USGBC.  It brought attendees in from around the state and broadened the conversation to a place where we can discuss policy and incentives for green building. 

We had a booth last year and were pleased with the turnout and exposure, but this year, in the new green (LEED certification pending) Raleigh Convention Center, there were twice as many exhibitors and 4x as many attendees (by my unofficial count).

Golden Arches Going Green in Cary, NC

In mid-July, North Carolina’s first green McDonald’s restaurant opened at 1299 Kildaire Farm Road in Cary, NC marking it as only the third of its kind nationwide to be built using eco-friendly materials and technologies. Development of the restaurant began with McDonald’s Owner/Operator Ric Richards who wanted to refurbish the 25-year-old building. As reconstruction options evolved, Richards said the environmental impact became clear: building a structure dedicated to sustainability would mean significant cost savings and reduced energy consumption. “Even though the costs to build this McDonald’s were higher in the near term, we knew that going forward with this green initiative we would set the stage for more savings long-term, both financially and environmentally,” Richards said.
