McGraw-Hill Construction to hold Green Retrofit event
McGraw-Hill Construction has announced that it will hold its Green Retrofit event to educate those with business careers in construction on emergent green issues.
The conference, which will be held October 21 to 22 at the company's headquarters in Manhattan, is called Green Retrofit: Changing the Landscape of Existing Buildings.
The conference will offer industry professionals new research revealing market activities and current opportunities to integrate green tactics into retrofit initiatives.
Harvey Bernstein, vice president of industry analytics, alliances and strategic initiatives, will present this research in the form of a report called Green Building Retrofit & Renovation: Rapidly Expanding Market Opportunities through Existing Buildings.
The conference is expected to draw more than 200 professionals from the design and construction fields, including architects, designers, engineers, contractors, owners, developers, project and construction managers, building product manufacturers, association executives, educators and government officials.
Presentations at the conference will examine the economic impact and potential energy, financial and tax savings of retrofit projects.
The emergence of new green opportunities in construction is one reason why the demand for architects - especially those who have learned sustainable methods in bachelors or masters programs - is expected to grow by 18 percent over the next seven years.
