Green Skyline '09: Tour the future of the built environment

Walk with us on Cascadia’s third annual tour of innovative green buildings throughout Vancouver. The tours demonstrate to the public and industry what green design, construction, and operations look like. Tours of residential buildings will be held in Vancouver on the afternoon of Sunday, September 27th.

Green Skyline serves to showcase sustainable building achievements and provides the public an opportunity to see a variety of ways in which buildings can achieve LEED and other high performance standards. You'll be able to take with you a better understanding of innovative green features and systems.
