Sustainable Construction Centre
Gaëtan's dream to showcase the greenest technology and products with displays that reflect the latest construction practices is gaining strong support from government and industry leaders.
Once they touch and experience what green construction feels like, visitors will make better decisions for their home and work. They will choose durable over flashy, energy-miser over power-waster and minimalist rather than complicated.
