GreenBuild Conference and Expo 2005

The USGBC’s GreenBuild Conference and Expo in Atlanta, GA on November 9-11, 2005, was attended by nearly 10,000 design and building professionals.

The Certified Wood Pavilion, in its fourth straight year on the expo floor, played host to 15 FSC certificate holders displaying their FSC-certified products, in addition to several other certificate holders who were located in other areas of the expo floor. Products exhibited included engineered flooring, tropical decking, domestic and tropical hardwoods, softwood lumber products, and a ‘no added urea-formaldehyde’ interior grade plywood.

The first annual Designing & Building with FSC Award was also given in conjunction with the expo. Approximately 250 people were in attendance at the reception to see Goldman, Sachs & Co. receive the award for its exceptional efforts in the use of FSC-certified products on the 30 Hudson Street building project. A case study of the Goldman Sachs building, as well as the other award entries, can be found at
