Providing education on sustainable building to youth, communities and affiliated building and planning organizations by demonstrating applied building techniques and illustrating the benefits of conservation, efficiency and emerging technology in the rapidly changing field of sustainable building science.


We are proud to present BuildSMART (Sustainable Materials and Resources Trailer). The trailer is a mobile learning resource that demonstrates sustainable living/working environments, illustrating superior green building methods. It is beginning its tour through Southern California!


BuildSMART is outfitted with a variety of durable material displays, installations and energy efficient systems. Examples of exhibited materials and systems include: sustainable flooring, recycled countertops, non-toxic insulation, and anti-microbial wallboards as well as solar PV, tankless water heating and a variety of highly efficient energy and water conservation methods. Since the Earth Day, 2010 roll-out of the mobile resource center, an estimated 40,000 people have viewed BuildSMART.
