Sustainable Building Initiative
Helping the Next Generation of Builders Build GreenOBC is a pioneer in sustainable building education for high school students and has woven green building practices and philosophies into its Construction Academies and Teacher Workshops before "sustainability" became the buzz word that it is today. We simply believe that to help the next generation of builders succeed, they need to understand green construction practices and philosophies.
OBC is a member of the Cascadia Region Green Building Council. Katie Insalaco, OBC's Deputy Executive Director, is a Certified Sustainable Building Advisor, a recognition earned from the National Sustainable Building Advisor Program.
Currently, we offer sustainability-focused education and information through:
- Building Futures Magazine
- Sustainable Buildng Teachers Workshops
- Construction Academies, and
- The Academy for Architecture, Construction and Engineering (ACE).
