Green Building Tours

Green Building tours are one of Greenbuild's most popular and exciting features, providing the opportunity to explore green buildings ranging from higher education facilities to sports venues. This year in Boston, Greenbuild tours will help attendees learn outside the convention center walls and present the best of the area’s sustainable buildings and neighborhoods.

The Greenbuild Tours Program is under development by the Greenbuild 2018 Host Committee, Illinois Green.

General reminders for tours:

  • Bring water bottles/ your own water. 
  • Bring a snack as only full day tours are providing lunch
  • All tours involve a significant amount of walking. Wearing comfortable shoes is highly advisable. Some of the tours DO NOT ALLOW heels and we do not recommend wearing on any of the tours.
  • Bring hats and sunblock as necessary
  • Some sites may require a Non-disclosure and/or liability waiver to be signed
