Residential Journey Map

The Residential Journey Map is a very specific attendee experience designed to guide your three-day experience at Greenbuild on topics that are of specific interest to you and your profession.

It includes education sessions, distinctive products, solutions and technology, and experiential learning opportunities. Greenbuild will bring together sectors of the green building industry who believes every building should be a green building, especially in single and multi-family homes.
