2012 Greenbuild Conference & Expo!


Greenbuild is the world’s largest conference and expo dedicated to green building.

Thousands of building professionals from all over the world come together at Greenbuild for three days of outstanding educational sessions, renowned speakers, green building tours, special seminars, and networking events.

Launched in 2002, Greenbuild is a great opportunity to build new relationships and connect with colleagues from throughout the industry and around the world.

The U.S. Green Building Council is hosting Greenbuild 2012 in San Francisco from Nov. 14-16. This year will be focused on bringing technology and sustainability together in the global green movement.

U.S. Green Building Council

The U.S. Green Building Council was established in 1993 and has grown to be a diverse group of builders and environmentalists, corporations and nonprofits, teachers and students, lawmakers and citizens. Today there are 77 chapters, 13,000 member organizations and 181,000 LEED professionals strong that share the same vision of a sustainable built environment.

Green building is a win-win, offering both environmental and economic opportunity. Greater building efficiency can meet 85 percent of future demand for energy in the United States and a commitment to green building has the potential to generate 2.5 million jobs.

The USGBC has facilitated the establishment of the most widely recognized and widely used green building program across the globe, LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). LEED is certifying 1.6 million square feet of building space each day in more than 130 countries. LEED is a certification program for buildings, homes and communities that guides the design, construction, operations and maintenance. Today, nearly 50,000 projects are currently participating in LEED, comprising more than 8.9 billion square feet of construction space.

Lamboo: Bamboo Made Better?


The idea behind engineered wood products (EWP) is to make wood stronger and more flexible in terms of design applications like long-spans and curved beams. Bamboo is already a highly regarded, sustainable wood species, and now one company is trying to make it better by turning the best kinds of bamboo into an EWP.

Made of thin layers of bamboo held together by adhesives, Lamboo is an engineered, high-performance bamboo product for exterior and interior applications such as beams, trusses, panels, awning systems and more. Choosing from 1,600 different species of bamboo, the company has isolated four with the strongest cellular structures to compose its Lamboo product, which is reported to be ten times stronger in tension, three times stronger mechanically, and twenty percent more stable in moisture and temperature changes compared to its wood counterparts.

And then there are the inherent advantages of bamboo itself, one of the fastest growing plants in the world. It’s an easily renewable resource and a building material that offers some of the highest strength and stability ratings. Bamboo has a warm and soft texture that has won many fans in the remodeling world. So the question is, can Lamboo improve a wood species that’s already excellent in terms of performance and sustainability? I’d like to know.

NanaWall Systems Lamboo Laminated Bamboo


Glass wall technology with laminated bamboo frames

NanaWall Systems, a leader in opening glass wall technology, introduces a folding door system featuring custom-crafted frames of Lamboo laminated bamboo. The Energy Star-Certified NanaWall folding door system incorporates an ecologically responsible wood-alternative material.

Lamboo laminated bamboo is introduced at the American Institute of Architects Convention May 12-14 in New Orleans.

NanaWall Systems has achieved Energy Star ratings and Dade County Hurricane Certification. NanaWall also offers Triple Glazing and OrniluxBird Protection Glass.

“We chose Lamboo because our customers requested more ecologically responsible material to use in LEED certified projects,” says Ebrahim Nana, president of NanaWall Systems. “We already offer FSC wood but Lamboo takes the concept one step further and is recognized as a rapidly renewable resource by the U.S. Green Building Council.”

Lamboo products meet criteria for 2011 “CALGreen” A4.405.4 (Use of building materials from renewable sources) and contribute to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification under MR Credit 6 – Rapidly renewable materials, IEQ Credit 4.4 – Low-emitting materials; ID Credit 1 – Innovation in Design (Environmentally Preferable Material), and ID Credit 2 – Innovation in Design (Life Cycle Assessment / Environmental Impact).

Lamboo is available with NanaWall’s WD65 wood-framed system and WA67 aluminum-clad wood-framed system.

Lamboo is an engineered bamboo product that is not only structurally stable but aesthetically pleasing as well. The production process uses 15 percent less embodied energy than that of engineered wood and 300 percent less embodied energy than aluminum and steel. Lamboo on average is 20 percent more stable than wood in moisture and temperature changes, ten times stronger than wood in tension and three times stronger mechanically. Bamboo sequesters 35 percent more carbon than its tree counterparts and also produces 30 percent more oxygen than a like-sized timber forest area.
