CBT Celebrates Green Month 2015

During the month of May the CBT office turns into an educational platform for sustainable initiatives throughout the firm’s 2015 Green month celebration. 

What started in 2006 as “Green Day” has grown to become a whole month-long symposium devoted to educating the firm’s staff, peers, and fellow colleagues on sustainable topics, and what’s new and relevant in sustainable architecture. Anchored by education programs, presentations and activities, Green Month is presented by CBT for both firm staff and colleagues from the area’s design and construction community.
