Greenbuild Expo 2010 for Wednesday, November 17th got off to an exciting start this morning with the opening plenary given by General Colin Powell. General Powell spoke of his green, low-middle income housing project in the South Bronx, which is certified LEED Platinum. It is clearly a project he is very proud of. He also spoke of our current economic situation in the U.S. and around the world. His main theme was that if we work together and focus on the future with unity and positivity, we can achieve anything. With over 50,000 attendees at this year’s Greenbuild, that theme is reality on the green building front.
